My daughter is 18 weeks old and has suddenly decided she only wants to drink half of her usual 5oz. Should I try to give her some baby food? Baby porridge?

Have you spoken to your health visitor? They will be able to advise based on her weight and growth etc

Please don’t give food yet, their bodies are not ready to handle it yet. The guideline is 6 months to allow their gut to develop properly.
I would consult a health care professional.
How long has it been going on for? Is she suffering from a cold at all?

She's absolutely fine. She's not been doing it long at all. Maybe just being a monster

She has been going through abit of a change over the past week or so. I'll speak to health visitor

Mine went off food when teething or under the weather. But yes speak to the professionals before making any big changes.
