  • sometimes if babies just experienced a new milestone, they dont want a break to eat...they wanna continue exploring their world. Also could be a situation where they are bored with the meal choices. teething could have something to do with it too. It might hurt to chew, so she just wants breastmilk...which is a familiar comforting food!

  • Yes, her back teeths are coming, but the Doctor said maybe is a stomach virus, but she doesn’t have any symptoms like diarrhea or vomit only a little fever one day ago for one day, but she still not eat.

  • Sounds normal; let her have as much breastmilk as she wants

  • kids that age live off of air and sunshine I swear to god. But she's probably not wanting to chew because her back molars are coming in, it hurts for them to chew when the molars are coming in.

  • Sounds totally normal! 12 moth olds don't eat much! Keep breastfeeding her on demand and offering other foods. She will make sure that she gets what she needs.
