Dd is turning one next month and she's very disinterested in food, it's starting to worry me. She still bf regularly and is not underweight so I'm not worried about nutrition for the time being, it's more that I'm starting to feel I'm dong something wrong. We generally do a mix of spoon-feeding and blw, and I've tried to vary her meals but she only accepts a few foods and even then she eats very little and spits out a lot. Any advice or words of support appreciated!

Have you mentioned it to your health visitor?

My DD had this and it turned out she had hypersensitivity and she just literally couldn't stand the texture of some foods.

My DD was like this, also BF and seemed more interested in milk until about a year.

Between her first and second birthday she would only eat cheese, yogurts, toast and refused vegetables of all kinds.

At 26 months it all changed and she now eats anything we put in front of her. She is currently obsessed with Bolognese. Something just clicked. It coincided with a better understanding and us not letting her leave the table without trying one spoonful.

My DD is about to turn one and still isn't very interested in food. We also do a mix of spoon feeding and BLW. She doesn't seem to have much of an appetite, whenever she is weighed at the doctors they tell me she needs to eat more! I spend the whole day focused on getting food into her. Sometimes I follow her around the house with various bits of food. She comes over and takes a bite when she feels like it! She is always moving and unless she's famished she won't tuck into a meal. She is still quite into breastfeeding. I don't think you're doing anything wrong, it's just some babies take a while to really eat properly. I have to tell myself to relax and that she'll get there.

Came on to post exactly the same thing! DD 12m and eats breakfast well, then pretty much nothing for the rest of the day (although would have an unending appetite for cake) except a pot of yoghurt after 'dinner' (of which all is thrown or spat out). I am still trying to BF although milk supply is almost non existent now as i'm pg, total refusal of cows milk/formula. I'm having a meltdown at the moment as I've had enough of trying to think of things to offer her and getting up stupidly early because she's starving in the morning. So following intently for advice!
