My 10 month Lo has stopped eating solids since 5 days now. he will just drink milk (breast milk and formula ). what should I do? should I be worried?nutrition Corner
till you limit or restrict the baby's milk intake he would not take solids. The sudden reason could be gastric/teething etc. Take advice of your paediatrician on this. You may maximum offer a child in this age 3 solid feeds and 3-4 milk feeds. Keep enough gap between his feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that he 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 his acceptance. Try and keep the consistency thin to semi solid, depending on child's preference and swallowing/chewing capacity.
