priya just saw ur new request, please give litt gap between 2 meals, we mother think they r not eating properly, so we keep giving food in small gaps, min gap 2- 2. 5 hrs, also first motherhood is trial and test concept. u will also understand ur baby food likings dont repeat food add lots of veg in rice an mix dal khichidi, as quality matters in pace of quantity. add mix nuts powder in kheer. all the best

hi Priyanka, try two- three different methods of cooking food... instead of chapati offer crispy khakra or soft uttapa. try different taste dals( mushy or cooked but visible not diluted) soft rice or rice like pulao some kids love soft food, some love chew, some love crunchy.. keep two options in front of him.. let him choose.. if he doesn't drink milk add the same in paratha or chapati... or add milk powder in the food.. observe what kind of food he loves.. such as sweet, sour, pungent, hot, cold you start eating the food (or pretend) in front of him but don't offer first.. once or twice if you do so he may ask for it.. feeding kids is a tough task... tell him stories .. keep him engrossed with puppet while feeding

Also dnt force him to eat. Try to distract his mind ans and feed him by showing something (not cartoons). I usually give him food by walking through verandah and showing him birds, animals and vehicles etc, talk to him about them.. You try this. I won't say it is 100%worthy everytime. But it is a good way.

Being chubby is not a direct measure of your child's health.. My baby also has a slim body compared to other babies in his age. But when he was not eating properly, he became dull and inactive. My doctor says until your baby seems to be active, he is OK. I recently started giving him goat's milk and iron drops (because he was having a low hb), along with the breastfeeding, i can see him back to normal.

Dear Priyanka, please stop force feeding, u have to allow ur baby to eat himself and also be patient as he will create lot of mess for u to clean, but eventually he will start creating good relation with food, its a very slow process, but its good for his future.

hi Priyanka Singh! There are many things we need to change before we expect the child to change. the first and foremost is the way child is being fed.. i. e. force feeding. this would do more harm than good. bring a change in the way u prepare dishes now. use alternatives method like hiding fruits in a dish, making fruit punch, fruit yogurt ,custard ,oats etc. also please avoid comparison between children. thirdly the misconception that fat means healthy .as long as your baby's weight is within the normal range , please do not worry. follow yr doc's advise.
