Hi everyone,
My 10 month old is not eating at all, how much ever I try !!! He takes only 2-3 spoons(baby spoon which I got when he was 4 mnth old) of food for his breakfast, lunch, dinner. He does not like any snacks either. If I let him play with the food in the hope that he will eat it, he just plays with it and puts very little in his mouth. He also does not drink much formula, he only drinks 1 or 2 oz at a time 2 times a day and while sleeping at night he drinks 4-5 oz. I had tried cereal in a bottle and he drank it for almost 4-5 days. Now, he knows by the taste that cereal is mixed in his drink and until I give him plain formula he does not drink his cereal+milk. I have tried not trying to feed him so that he gets hungry, but this guy does not get hungry at all !!! In his 6th month check up he was in the 50th percentile for weight and in his 9th month check up it came down to 30th percentile. Though his led said, he is active and healthy so I should not worry about it, but as a mom I can't help stop worrying and let him play, scream, crawl all day without any food !!! By 9 month he was eating little so his weight was in 30th percentile. But, this past one month He is only eating like 10 baby spoonfuls of food in a whole day !!!! I am at my wit's end - please help me !!!!

Thanks Shena for your reply. He has a mess feeder, but as with all other foods, he bites into it for like 30 secs and then starts playing with it for 1-2 mins and then just leaves it and goes to grab another toy !!!
