Hey Dimple , a trick that works sometimes is , alternate between a light snack and a heavy meal, so if for instance you have given some rice and curd at 8. 15 try to give a fruit , half a cheese slice or a boiled egg at 11. 30 so by the time it is 1. 30 and his official lunch time he will be hungry and willing for his meal...

He is passing urine every 2-3 hours, and does not have any discomfort.

Hey Dimple, as long as your son is passing urine every 2-3 hours and it is not yellow, then I think you need not worry. If he wears diapers, then he should have about 5-6 wet diapers daily. If you feel he is uncomfortable or crying and controlling his pee, then you may check with his doctor. Take care.

Hi Dimple. I think you have a great meal schedule going for your baby. However, as my experience with both my children have been that after a certain age, they do not want to eat too often. So what I did was give slightly heavier meals with light snacks of fruits/yogurt/biscuits etc. Maybe you could try switching one snack/meal with a fruit (sometime before lunch or after his afternoon nap). If he is eating well with a different variety, then please carry on with that. The link suggested by Neena is great. I have tried a few recipes from there for my son.

I have one more thing to ask about my baby boy. He is not passing urine fully, taking one interval. Should I consult with doctor?

Dimple, I want to add one more point with the above ones. Many times we compare baby's appetite with what he / she used to eat during their growth surge / phases. During babies' growth phases they eat more than usual and after the growth surge, the quantity of food they eat decline a bit. I used to confuse a lot with my first baby and at that time my doc described this to me and things were quite easy with my second baby.

Hi Dimple. If your baby has suddenly lost his appetite, there could be a number of reasons for that- he could be teething, feeling full for longer after his last meal/snack, or maybe feeling unwell. As Neetu suggested, please provide with a little more information. That way the other fellow parents will be able to share their suggestions and experiences too. Thanks :)
