my dd is a week off being one and has gone from eating anything i gave her to being a right fusspot! she suddenly knows that vegetables are very bad for children and will fish them out so she can leave them!

I'm just looking for any advice? What do you do if your baby doesn't eat what you give them? Do you make something else? Do they still get their pudding if they don't eat dinner?? I keep thinking surely she's too young to be manipulative and giving in to feeding her philidelphia sandwiches (she'll wolf them!)

Not sure what to do....

Sounds like she wants to feed herself. Also, her growth slows down about now, so the appetite diminishes a little. Finger foods as much as possible, otherwise let her have a spoon as well as you, and look at what she eats over a week rather than a day. As long as she grows, is bright and energetic, then she's getting what she needs.

Thanks, I'll have a look at those other threads.
Madlizzy, she does want to feed herself! and she does most of the time. Yes, she is very bright and energetic so I guess she is fine and I should stop worrying!
