Post subject: my baby wont eat any hot meals help!!!!
i dont know if my 14mth old is just going through a phase but mealtimes are now becoming a nightmare. this is day 3 im im starting to worry now she wont eat any hot meals i give her. never had a problem with meal times. she will eat finger food, i thought she was going through a phase, were she wants to feed herself? but she just plays with the spoon nothing goes in the mouth. i know i should relax but im worried shes not getting enough to eat. how do we overcome this stage? any advice please would be very greatful x Sad

Try not to worry to much, does she drink a lot of milk during the day? if she does this could be filling her up?

The only reson why i asked is that i had same problem with my daughter. I spoke to health visitor and she just told me to give her milk in the morning and before she goes to bed ( my daughter constantly ask for milk not food ) so the health visitor explained that the milk was filling her up so she didnt want to eat. At one stage my daughter was having about 3-4 pints of milk a day Shocked

I had that problem. I give my son a bowl of food and a spoon that he plys around with, and even toys (I know! but it works!! LOL) then I spoonfeed him, sometimes he grabs the spoon off me, and he ends up with about four spoons to my one, but as long as he has a bowl, spoons/forks and a good toy - sometimes a pen and paper - I catch him unawares coz I know he's hungry - I think everything is too exciting and new

- they are like - whoa, mums given me her bowl and spoon - whoa, I'm not eating coz I'm so going to concentrate on how to use it.....lalalalaa....spoon, bowl, food, works with spoon lallalaa

While they are in this zone, just try to silently cram the food in while commenting on what they are looking at! LOL
