Hoping someone can offer advice. Started weaning lo at 6 months. She's been lOving her purees and porridge/weetabix in the morning. This week however she's taken a couple mouthfuls of her porridge and just refused to open her mouth no amount of coaxing or singing persuades her so I offered toast and as lOng as I feed it her shes been having the toast but doesn't want the spoon near her. At lunch she loves her yogurt and this hasnt changed so she's taking the spoon then and for dinner she's habing couple mouthfuls of her meal - and I've tried allsorts veg combos, fish (which she loves) everything - but just shuts her mouth again. Last nt as an experiment I gave her yogurt and she gobbled it up. I tried scrambled egg n toast today but she's taken 3 mouthfuls and that's it.
Not too worried overall as she's taking my breastmilk as norm, in fact feeding 3/4 times during the night up from 2/3 but at least I know she's getting the calories but how can I persuade her to eat again? Is it a phase?
She won't feed herself I try. She will take her little crispy snack thing ( I give her one after her lunch). She's well, no temperature, not teething that I can tell, plenty wet/dirty nappies and shes her usual happy smiley self.
I know you said it's not teething but for the most part of last week my LO seemed to lose his appetite for solids, I didn't suspect teething as I thought he was teething a few times for months and months and there were still no signs of any. Plus he seemed fine in every other way.
However towards the end of last week I checked his gums and there was a little spikey tooth. His appetite has now returned.
Hopefully it may just be a phase if it's not related to teething.
