My son always starts crying when he is eating what should i do?

well my son is 7months old he had never had problems eating but just recently he always starts crying while eating
he doesnt cry when he eats oatmeal but i can't always give him that and it's not that he doesn't like the food i give him because he always liked it before (3 days ago)
i do change his diaper before eating so that can't be it...

  • Maybe he has a sore throat. I read how babies will fuss and cry while eating if their throat is hurting.

  • What else do you give him?

  • Maybe he has gas? Does he drink enough water?

    Maybe he has more of an appetite and perhaps give him some fruits to go with his meals to fill him up.

    As long as he is not colicky... perhaps he is just hungry? If it continues I would ask his doctor.

    Good luck!

  • Ear infections can cause this. Take him to the pediatrician.

  • i agree with the pp, could be an ear infection or teething, or it could just be him being stubborn, is he only fussy when he is eating?

  • He may not like being spoon fed. You can fork mash foods and let him feed himself.

  • Have him checked out. My 7 week old does this and she has reflux but it could be numerouse things. In the mean time stop feeding him when the crying starts and then try again 15 min later. GL
