Silly question really as I'm sure it is PFB and all that though..
She's nearly 7 months and has been on solids since she turned 6 months. We've both got stinking colds, me worse than her but she's very snotty.
Since Saturday lunchtime she has lost all interest in food and only wants the bottle. Most she'll take is a couple of mouthfuls (or a couple of chips - bad mummy ). I've tried before, during and after milk feeds to no avail.
I know deep down it's ok but after my telling off last week from my 'wonderful' HV I almost feel like I should be force feeding her, which is rubbish.
She's not going to starve or get some hideous disease from malnutrition, is she? She is drinking plenty of milk. Come and beat some sense into me please!
She'll be fine - as far as I can tell, they pretty much all do this. She may well go off food when she's teething too, and for random reasons you'll never fathom. Solid food is "complementary" at this stage - milk is still her main source of nutrition.
I had this exact same scenario - its just the cold putting her off! My 14 month old when she was 9 months roughly did not eat for 3 weeks properly due to ear infection and teething and has survived to tell the tale!
Milk is the key still at the early stages of weaning.
