  • Put it in front of him and try to let him feed himself. When he's hungry enough, he'll go at it.

  • How old is he? Maybe he isn't ready.

  • Set a schedule and feed him on that schedule...when he is hungry during the time period you give him to eat, he will eat and his body will learn to become hungry during that time

  • i agree..a scedule will work best. it might depend on how old his is..but the younger the better to teach!! his body will learn that scedule after doing it for a couple weeks

  • I agree... even if he isn't old enough yet try (I know it's hard, sometimes) to keep him on a schedule and try foods even if he eats just a little.
