in this case try to feed small frequent meals, give half of milk what he used to take but do it more often... and give his caloric food like mashed banana, avacado, sweet potato, grated cheese, paneer.. Add ghee in everything.. in this way if he is eating less also you can make it more calories.. and make sure you have finger food in the plate, whenever you want to feed a spoon try feeding finger food first.

hi.. it's a phase all the babies go through somewhere around 9-11 months.. they become more independent and doesn't like to be spoon fed, you can try giving ur baby more of finger food like boiled and bite pieces carrot Sweet patato, avacado, banana.. if khichdi, Dalia and all is given don't make it to watery, make it little thick and mashed well. let the baby feed himself.. if you are worried about loosing weight add more calories like ghee, butter in the finger food.. you can Google more about this phase and it's very common

Hi Rohit, check wheather he is teething or not. During teething also child loose their appetite. Give him semi solid foods like well cooked khichdi having thinner consistency, powdered daliya, oats.
