both my girls have always been great eaters, but when my oldest daughter was about 11 months old, she suddenly stopped eating solids, and only wanted the bottle. she wouldn't even take her sippy cup anymore! i linked this to a couple different things >afterward, of course!< first, my second daughter was born when my oldest was only ten months old, so that may have been her reaction to jealousy. second, she got the rest of her teeth in between 11 months and 14 months, and during that entire period would not eat a thing! she even lost a little weight. but she's back to eating solids again, and has gained back more than she lost.
point being, maybe your son is going through that serious teething stage where chewing hurts, or maybe his routine's been upset by something and so now he's reverting back to his securities, doing what comforts him. if he's never really eaten solids before, then maybe that change is what it is.
