My son is fifteen months old and he is not eating anything .Doctors told us to start giving him solid food I'm trying but he is not eating, sumtimes it depends on his mood. Most of d time his stomach is upset he is suffering from loosemotions Nd vomiting. yesterday only he came from hospital bcoz of dehydration. Plz suggest what precautions I will take so dat he will eat , still we r giving him formula milk Isomil.

Please first take care of the hygiene of water and whatever he is eating, well. Children are more susceptible to infections. Take care of what he is putting in his mouth, toy, dirt etc, which may be giving him frequent loose motions. Boil his water for 20 minutes at least. You may give him all types of fruits (mashed, cooked, juice form), vegetables (cooked mashed or soup), khichri, dal chawal, roti well mashed in dal/veg, porridges, curd, butter milk, scrambled/boiled eggs, well cooked fish/poultry,if non vegetarian. Give in a form (mashed, pureed or small bites), whatever he can take easily. Start with small amounts 2-3 spoons and gradually increase to a katori, what ever he accepts readily. Give 3-4 solid feeds in a day. Alternate these with milk feeds. Hope it helps.
