Im focused on the ONE TOOTH lol as in like days ago... he has a count of ONE tooth? he's a late bloomer. But, ya, give him plenty of finger food snacks, veggies, fruits, and thing to naw on; that will get those gums itching to spring out some teeth lol

he might have another tooth coming in. when my kids had a tooth coming in they would pick at there food but not eat much. so i would give them stuff that was cold and went down easy. or put baby oralgel on it before they ate and that helped too

@LISA Thank u sooo much... he has plenty of the wet diapers and a fair share of stinky ones..Naps are on cue so I need to relax a little and stop panicking about everything...

Just a little something to remember, they will not let themselves starve! Like Lauren said though, try serving a little bit of food, most all day. Adults should do it too, but we don't. Their tummy's are still small so they need less to fill up yet will empty faster than ours too so just feed often. It may make nap time a little easier if he is full. -- I would also let the doc. know just incase and see what they have to say. They may recommend Pediasure. As long as he's drinking and having plenty of wet diapers, I wouldn't worry too much. My daughter was picky from about 14 months-26 months. She has had a huge appetite lately. Good Luck!

maybe you could try to give him more meals in a day. if he won't eat enough at breakfast, lunch, and dinner time try to give him snacks in between the meals. like fruit and crackers and cheese.
