They try to exert their independence by preferring some foods and rejecting other foods. 2016-01-16 11:03:49

You can start with fixing her meal timings for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between. Offer food during these times only and not in between. 2016-01-16 11:05:53

Try and make her have meals with the family. She would follow you and others in their eating habits. 2016-01-16 11:06:47

Her weight is on the lower side but once she starts following a regular meal pattern her weight gain would happen. 2016-01-16 11:08:40

You may flavour her milk with natural flavourings like elaichi powder, kesar, dates syrup etc. You may give in the form of fruit shakes like mango/banana/cheeku/apple shake. You may even try giving milk in the form of porridges/kheer/custards. 2016-01-16 11:10:20

Give her water after she takes solids 2016-01-16 11:20:51

she just refuses.. we tried using different glass, bottles, sippers, spoons, etc.. but her intake of pure water is very less..though she does pee normally 2016-01-16 11:21:39

You can give it little lukewarm. 2016-01-16 11:22:07

we have tried luke warm, matka ka pani, mineral water 2016-01-16 11:22:31

Puja Vasisht
In that case let her gradually increase the water intake on her own. 2016-01-16 11:22:40

ok. we try to make her food slightly wattery, to compensate 2016-01-16 11:23:07

Instead of making food watery, you can increase her fluid intake with buttermilk, lassi, adding little lemon or fruit juice to plain water should also help. 2016-01-16 11:25:15

For babies you should use only mild salt. They should not be given very salty foods. Add salt to savoury foods.That is salt would be added to salted foods only. 2016-01-16 11:37:26

You can offer her a dal-cereal combination like dal roti mash, khichri. Khichri could be of pulse-vegetable and broken wheat too instead of regular pulse-rice. Add a teaspoon off ghee/butter to it. 2016-01-16 11:42:58
