Feeding problems for 9 month old

My DS has always been a difficult feeder and hardly drank any milk in the early days and is consequently on 9th centile. When we started weaning at 5 months he couldn't get enough of food. However over last couple of months he is eating less and less and is also completely refusing all bottles except about 4oz in the morning. He won't eat lumpy food and not interested in finger food. I'm so stressed about him not developing properly and also getting dehydrated. All the posts I have read seem to have some similar issues but none that have a baby refusing solids, milk and finger food. Anyone else got a baby like mine or can offer any advice. Thanks

My ds is the same, I am so stressed he is 6 months old and 12lb 14oz, has never been interested in milk , he takes about 4 oz 5x a day at the most, today he's only had 13 oz all day and a few mouthfulls of baby food, I don't have any advice but it'd good to know I'm not the only one! Xx

Any chance he could be teething? Might be putting him off. My DD is also not a great feeder, on 9th centile and never eats much at any time but definitely is very difficult to feed and eats very little in the weeks before a tooth pops out. Is he grumpy too?

Despite this, my DD is staying stuck on the 9th centile though so trying not to worry too much - she's small but not dropping in weight IYSWIM. Maybe get DS weighed too to see that he is maintaining?

oh, and yes my DD has never taken more than 4-5oz of milk at a time. Dunno what she;s taking now as EBF (I used to express) but probably no more
