Hi Sneha, it seems that its every house' story. I have heard that kids at this age throw tantrums for eating. What works for me is i try to offer him variety and never force him to finish or eat more. If he doesnt want to eat more than 5-6 bites then its ok. for that moment i stop feeding him. Then after sometime i start eating some fruit or a healthy snack. Seeing me eating he also comes back to eat and if he finds it tasty then he asks for more otherwise spits. So experimenting and giving options frequently is what helping me. Though i would not say that i am 100% successful as he still drinks milk more than anything else. And i'm sure the day he leaves drinking the milk from bottle he would start eating solid foods. You could try this as early as possible.

Hi Sneha, you wll have to keep trying and experimenting till you find out what is it that your baby likes--salty food or sweet foods etc. Though it may sound very hard, but sometimes, letting the child be hungry does the trick. Skip the milk feed for one time for him and when he gets really hungry, offer him food and his chances of accepting that food will increase. Also, do not force feed but give him as much he likes in whatever quantity. It is a cycle that you need to break--the child wants milk, you offer him milk, he drinks it and fulfills his hunger, rejects solid food. So somewhere break this pattern. Hope this helps.
