My 11-month old daughter has, in the past week, become extremely fussy and at some meal times is refusing to eat.
For breakfast, we usually give her weetbix/rice cereal with milk (warmed in the microwave) and she seems to enjoy it.
For lunch and dinner we have been offering her various things:
- Pureed vegatables/lentils
- Mince meat with vegetables/potato
- Finger food (cauliflower, broccoli, etc.)
Most of the time she doesn't want to even open her mouth for the pureed/mince food, so it's not like she's tried and and doesn't like it (it's very tasty anyway, at least to our palate).
With finger food she often puts a piece in her mouth and bites a bit off, but eventually she will just throw it on the floor and the dog will eat it.
The only foods she seems to enjoy at dinner time are:
- Pieces of cheese
But obviously we can't keep feeding her this all the time.
She is still breast-fed 3 times per day (and seems to eat a lot of milk this way), but always after the solids so I don't think it's an issue with her being full. Sometimes she just says "mama" while we're feeding her solids, reaching for my wife indicating that she wants a breast-feed.
She doesn't seem to be showing any signs of pain (e.g. from teething), as far as we can see. She already has 6 teeth.
We're becoming worried about her -- hopefully it's just a phase, but any recommendations?
