14 month old not eating
« on: June 11, 2013, 15:28:36 pm »
My dd is 14 months old and is 24lbs. She is usually a great eater. Last week she came down with croup followed by a bacterial cold so she is on antibiotics. She just spits out most of her food. This is what we do
7am bottle - was 6 oz but she is only taking 4 the past few days
830 breakfast
10 snack
1115 lunch
330 snack with milk
530 dinner
7 bottle of 6-8oz

Teething is also suspected.

Should I stops that morning bottle and give her breakfast and milk in her straw cup?

How are things going now?  has her appetite returned since having the antibiotics?  Is she still showing signs of teething?

I've a 14mnts son with same problem and i swap his day milk with honeyed water and he's eating better now.
He's still drinking lots of milk while sleeping though, so no problem for his milk supply (he's still consuming 650-750ml of breastmilk each day)
