LO been ill & will only eat pears... help!!
« on: March 08, 2012, 11:03:46 am »
Hi!

My LO is 8m and  has recently been poorly with a cold and nasty cough. She went right off her solids. I didn't worry too much about that given she was obviously feeling horrid and was still doing ok on her milk. The last couple of days she has been a better - not 100% but certainly on the road to recovery. She will however only eat pears. I have tried mixing pears with other foods but she isnot interested. Before this episode she was happily eating most foods pureeded. She seems to fuss as soon as i put her in the high chair until i manage to get a taste of the pears in her mouth - then she's happily eat it.

Yesterday and today, I have relented and just given her pears as I don't want her to get out the swing of eating. Is this the right thing to do? Should I carry on doing this until she is better, or should I still offer her the different foods each meal. I just don't want to get to a point where once well she'll refuse anything but pears!!

Help  :o

To be honest at her age, I'd offer other things and if she doesn't have them, just take them away.  
Here's my blog which is focussed on simple food for babies, toddlers and families http://mamacook.blogspot.com/
