My son is 6 months old and doesn't like eating neither does he suck at will except I put him to it. It started with his last dose of DPT, the first 2 gave him seizures that lasted for 2months and was calmed only with promethazine. But the last dose at age 5months got him so sick and lean with a terrible loss of appetite that uptil now he doesn't like to eat anything. He's very active and developing on his milestones fast, infact he attempts to stand as he crawls about yet doesn't demand for food and will eat so little when given.

Well, do keep in mind he is also prime age for teething. His mouth could be bothering him.

@Little Miss Can't be wrong- thanks ma'am, I thought as much but that's another thing, my first 2 boys had their teeth at 4months while he's yet to

@Christine- thanks too, we've been to the doctors but nothing wrong and he's about 9.6kg and I hope it passes soon.

What weight percentile is he at? If it continues I would take him to the doctors. Sometimes babies aren't big eaters but if he will nurse when u put him to it and he's at an appropriate weight, I would just wait to see if it passes. My ten month old goes thru phases where he will eat very little or eat alot. It sounds like your baby is very alert and active so that's a good sign :)
