Hi I am new in this community, my baby is rejecting food, what ever we have offering to her. She is otherwise perfectly fine. Her weight is 8.4 kg at the age of 1 yr & 9 months

Is she still having breastmilk or formula? If so you could try cutting this back. I used the same amount of water but halved the formula as he would have been very upset if I just halved the overall amount. He was eating small amounts but not sleeping through, after I did this he started eating more and sleeping through. Then as he ate more I cut back the formula more.

Hi there I had that same problem with my son. Children at that age are very picky eater I still have picky eaters and they are now 16,15, and 13 oh and 54 lol I wouldn't worry if the doctors not at all concerned. keep trying with different kinds of finger foods Gerber has this wonderful veggie snacks or try juicing fruits and veggies my middle son just learned that I juice his veggies for him he always had a problem eating his veggies lol maybe add some color we love color and it makes the food look so tasty. if it doesn't bother you try giving her something in her hand and let her go off (do watch her) but sometimes children at that age will not sit with a plate full of food in front of them its scary.. Also if you are concerned about her weight and nutrients try pediasure drinks it also gives them an appetite but discuss it with your doctor first. Good luck :)
