9 month old stops liking her solid help!!!!!
« on: September 24, 2013, 02:24:41 am »
Hi I need advise on blw. I am a ftm and baby has been refusing me to feed her. Used to love her solid so much. Started feeding at 5 mth as per paed advise due to reflux. At 8.5 mths stop allowing me to feed her and would just clamp her mouth shut. I have no choice but start blw and also reduce feed to 3 times a day. It has improved at lot but I am still struggling. How do u get protein or cereal in baby with blw. She refuse me to spoon feed her cereal and would sometimes take pouch food with meat otherwise how do I giver her meat. Dinner is terrible she won't eat much, a bit cheese and crackers.

Wu 0600
0645 milk 170ml
0830 breakie half a slice of toast with avocado and 50ml of milk
1200 lunch one food pouch 130g or 2 zuzzhini frittata, few pieces of sweet potatoes/broccoli
1345 milk 200ml
1630 dinner cheese bits and crackers or banana plus 60ml of milk
1820 milk 200ml

Is this enough? How do I get her to eat more.. Pls help.

Seems to me like she's eating plenty... Is she generally happy (not crying from hunger)? Is she still gaining weight and following the general trend of the growth chart?

Protein - dairy like cheese, yoghurt, etc. provides protein. Egg - so omelette or scrambled eggs - DS loved them with a little cheese and some chives/onion & ham mixed through.

You could try giving her a spoon and letting her dip it in and feed herself - incredibly messy but its worth trying.

This is a common time for things to go wonky with feeding. This may be useful to you Spoon Refusal and Finger Food Tips
