My daughter just turned one and she just started spitting out her food. She has always been such a good eater, but now not so much. She thinks its funny to spit it out and make funny faces. How do i get her to eat or is she just going through a phase?

Oh it's a phase and not a fun one at that! My 1 year old started doing the same thing!! She is just now, after atleast 6 weeks starting to do it less! I have read not to laugh or get angry with them just to ignore the behavior. It seems to be working for me! Good luck!!

Oh I wouldn't worry about it. At this age they are so goofy and not right lol. If shes hungry enough, she's going to eat without a doubt. Also, as they all say (not so helpful) all kids are different.... It seemed to me that my kids always slowed down on eating at this age... This maybe because they just had a growth spurt. The spitting and funny faces... lol enjoy it, at least she's pleasant and isn't giving you problems with not eating a thing at all! good luck!
