Hi Ronke Ayandare ! U need to be patient with him and avoid force feeding. let him experiment with different foods, tastes and textures. make him sit on a high chair and serve him whatever you cook. Feed him alongside. I am sure u will be messier but he would definitely sooner or later learn to eat.

Hi Helen Tony ! Chubbiness does not always mean the baby is healthy. As long as baby is active and cheerful, please do not worry. However u could serve small frequent meals to baby. also try and add variety. let the baby eat independently by making him sit on a high chair and u could feed in between. Gradually he would come around.
