Answer:
Please note the following and then let us know if this is the reason 1. Are your son's gums swollen? 2. Does he feel cranky and irritated most of the time? 3. While breastfeeding does he take the nipple between his gums and try to chew it? 4. Was he on some antibiotics? If answer to any of 3 the above-mentioned answers is yes, then please take note that your son may be teething and hence losing interest in eating. You can give him some frozen veggies that will soothe his gums. In case, he was on antibiotics then because of the side-effects of antibiotics there is a feeling of bloatedness and hence the child refuses to eat. In that, case give him liquid diet like soups, thin cosistency dal, khichdi.
