  • my son did the same thing and come to find out the reason why he wasnt eating the fruits and vegtables was because he wanted to feed himself. let him hold onl to the spoon , with your hand on it to and guide the spoon to his mouth, he will think he is doing it by himself and he will eat. give ita try

  • Okay I am sorry but I keep reading your question and omitting the word "and" and it keeps freaking me out! LOL! I'm sorry I know it's silly but I had to share...

  • My DD has been doing this off and on since 6 mo. (8 mo. now) due to teething. Her gums were just swollen and sore and she was uncomfortable eating. It hasn't affected her at all. I'd say as long as the Dr. says everything is fine and your child isn't losing a significant amount of weight, then don't worry.

  • YESSSSS!!! My dd just turned 6 months and the past few days have been very different. She isnt drinking or eating that well. She already has 2 teeth and im wondering if more arent coming. Maybe thats why they dont want to eat?
