Hello again,

These links might help ease your fears. By all means book an appointment with your GP if you are still worried. My DS is 16 months and has never been big on solid foods. He is still BF and is clearly healthy so I have not been worried.

Good luck!

Once babies hit around 12 months, their growth slows down and they just don't need to eat as much. Rather than look at day to day, look at what he eats over a week. As long as he is bright, alert and gaining weight, he's fine.

Is your LO gaining weight and healthy? I would try not to worry if he is. Toddlers don't need very much food and are able to self regulate their intake.
