If ur paedritician recommended you ,then its fine to give him recommended food. Try the techniques of Deepti first and if it doesnt work then try the mobile technique by keeping mobile far away. Does ur baby eat by spoon now after watching songs or cartoon??Does it work for you?

I am totally agree with you Deepti whatever u said but there are some things that moms dont do by their wish,its the situation that forces them to do so. And i believe every moms concern is only to give their child proper food n nutrition by whatever way they can manage.

I am also against to make baby watch tv or mobile but when nothing works for a child to eat,neither talking nor singing or anything. Then there is no way for a mom to entertain baby in any way so that he/she eats well. And i only make baby watch mobile during feeding and no time else and i make sure that mobile is kept far away from the eyes of baby. Every baby is different in their eating habits. And yes if the baby is below 6 months ,i totally recommend breast milk for baby.

If ur baby is really less than the age of 6 months,then u should only give breast milk to him and no other semi solid things. I thought ur baby is more than 6 months.

Don't practice your child to see mobile or tv at this very young age. child can have severe eye problems as they grow. best way is you talking to baby or you singing songs or narrating a story, this will enhance their interactive skills. coming to your problem, make baby sit on lap and feed in spoon, if he is not eating in spoon then there is a small vessel to feed babies, we call paladai or ollale. the pointed end you can put into baby mouth they will start pulling.. hope this helps.

if he is not having head control then do not give him semi solid food .. unless he is at least above 5 months.

Play a video song or a cartoon whatever he likes on ur mobile during feeding.. When his focus is on watching songs he will not shake his head and will eat. Try this technique..

I feel the best way to feed ur baby with spoon is to take him on ur lap and then feed .This is the best position to feed ur baby.
