hi guys, my princess is 11months. she drinks her milk with cereal, juice and water. she eats biscuit and thats about it. no real food. she doesn't like her hands to be dirty with food, so she cries. oh she will suck an orange as well. if i give her food in a bowl, she'll throw it out and play with the bowl and spoon.lol. but, like Janet, her doctor says it's ok, she'll eat wen she's ready. jus keep givin her the milk and wat ever she likes until.......

hi im new here, but im interested in your post, my baby doesn't eat too until he was 2 and a half, he only drinks milk, now he eats biscuits and bread, but not real food, he doesnt want anything that's mashed, he likes food thats crunchy, i just give him what he likes atleast he eat those, but he's pediatrician said it's ok as long as he drink lots of milk appropriate for his age, but i should always try to feed him real food even if he keeps on refusing, when hes ready he will eat

Maybe the baby doesnt like what youre feeding him/her. Also depends on what you ate when you were pregnant with her. Try somethng that you ate a lot of when you were pregnant with her, and also try diff foods until you find what your baby likes.

Hi, I think we need a bit more info :) How old is your baby? Are they on the breast or formula at the moment? What foods have you tried to feed them? Hope you get loads of good advice.
