Baby isn't eating as much....

Hi, My 10.5 month old son isn't eating as much as he used to. He will drink his bottles, but isn't interested in any food we try to give him. Is this just a growth spurt? I've tried different foods, no luck.

my 10 mo old is not at all interested in food at all, baby food, table food, nothing....he's a healthy weight, and he will eat those little puffs but nothing else!

My little guy is on strike as well. It's a happy day when he actually eats a "normal" meal. From what I've read, the only consistent thing about a toddler is inconsistency. I'm hoping it will pass soon.

my lil girl used to eat so good but since she we started giving her solids she will not let anyone feed her she uses her fingers and also a spoon but im worried she is not getting enough. the doc said this is normal just as long as she isnt losing weight she will be fine

my 10 months old went on a complete strike regarding all solids for almost 2 weeks, then started eating them again like it never happened...guess it's just a phase. if it continues, I would see a doctor.

Could he be teething?

My daughter will go almost a week with only wanting breast milk every time a tooth starts to come in. As long as their getting adequate wet/poopy dipes, I'd say your fine, but ask your dr if it goes on for extended periods.
