Hi Doctor, My Daughter is a year old now. She refuses almost all the type of food. Also doesn't like to eat from a spoon or a cup , so I am feeding her with a medical dropper. The dropper thing is the most worrisome subject for me. she had refused bottle @2 months only. From past a week she is sick with fever , the entire day of her goes without eating. She is sleeping long hours without any meal. I am in a lot of stress , Please let me know what can be done. Thank you

I hope you are well. Since when has she been picky and choosy about eating meals ? Also, when did you start with semi-solids ? Please do see a doctor in case she has an deficiencies or worm infestation. Many a times it could be due to worm infestation or because the child's digestion is weak. Try to feed her in small intervals so that she is able to eat little little in one go. It's okay even if she eats Little but feed her as and when possible :) Try to give her soups, porridges, stewed fruits, mashed or pureed veggies, rice kanji,dal soup, softened rice with veggies. You can add mashed beans to it as well. I hope this helps. Take Care
