My son is 10 months and he doesnt want to eat, he is still having cereal @ breakfast and dinnertime, anything else is a plus. He does have his bottle tho, even if he does eat it is very little? please help , does anyone else have this problem?

I have had this problem, mom of three, now 16, 12, and 5 and also child degree and tons of experience with young children. Here is the thing if your son has access to bottle all the time, like sitting with him at play time, are just always has milk in it and accessible then he wont get an appetite because he is pretty much staying tided over by the constant milk supply. Without him losing all calories or nutrition of course try and minimize the bottles. He is ok to be on formula till one year but not nearly as much if he is eating any foods. Start by only giving bottle like during the night or first thing in the morning, nap and then maybe closer to bedtime,,,during the day set out a sippy cup or bottle of water only and then he will start to have an appetite, make it fun and even you appeal to him eating if he sees you eating with him, or pretending to eat what you are trying to feed him (if it is baby food) I have tons more ideas and thoughts you are welcome to call me for quicker answers. Relax, he will eat!!! krista 619 303 7945
