How much actual food do they eat and how many bottles/BF do they take?
DS has decided he will no longer eat any food from baby jars only 'real' food he also won't be spoon fed outside the house, when we are the house he will be spoon fed in his high chair but outside theres just to much to do.
He has 4 7oz bottles a weetabix or readybrek with fruit in for breakfast and will eat his evening meal last night chicken and tomato pasta and some apple crisps after, but at lunch time we are usually out he will sometimes take a few spoonfulls and a few bits of finger food but not much as he just wants to go explore (even in other peoples houses).
Is eating enough even though he's not eating much lunch? I like to be out and about and don't really want to come home every lunch time i don't drive so it could be akward coming home to feed him
Well, he eats more than my 14mo ds! At that age ds was surviving mostly on breast milk still, with the odd chomp on what was put in front of him (we did/do BLW). However, it's quite common to refuse the spoon as they get older so have you tried many finger foods? He might be happier to feed himself.
Good luck - there's not much more anxiety provoking than your child not eating/eating little.
My dd didn't eat loads at that age. I don't think it's uncommon for food just to be for taste at that age and most of their nutrician to come from milk. At 18 months dd eats like a horse, she probably only started eating a decent amount at about 1.
