Hi, my baby is 8months old . she doesn't eat properly , Everytime she is fussy. And doesn't drink water at allnutrition Corner
you may maximum offer a child in this age 3 solid feeds and 3-4 milk feeds. Keep enough gap between her feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that she is hungry. Again total milk amount can be between 500-650 ml maximum in a day, so that the child doesn't fill his stomach with milk only. Introduce one new food at a time, let the child accept it and gets used to it for few days. Introduce another new food only after a week. Do not introduce new foods back to back, it may confuse the child and would lower her acceptance. Try and keep the consistency thin to semi solid, depending on child's preference and swallowing/chewing capacity.Try offering water only after solids, so that the child is little thirsty for water. You may flavour the water with little fresh fruit juice. The total water intake in a day should be between 120-250 ml.
