My 1 year old baby boy always keep food in mouth. Took so many times to swallow it. He doesn't give interest on food only loves breastmilk. I never feel that he is hungry. I started give hom liv 52, bonnisan. Still it doesn't work. What to do? I am so worried

Even though he 'should' be eating some foods by now... breast milk is still the absolute best thing for him. Go ahead and keep nursing him on demand and offer him easy to manage foods at frequent intervals. He should figure it out and start to eat more foods soon. Some young toddlers have texture issues. I have a nephew that still preferred baby food pouches up until he was 2 because of a texture issue w/ other foods. His mom was also worried about him when he was only a year because he really wouldn't eat much of anything.

There may be an issue to discuss w/ the doctor and I would certainly never tell a concerned mom to NOT talk to the doctor, but I would be more 'inclined' to believe that w/ a bit more time and patience he'll start eating more and more.
