Help!!! My 15 month old used to eat lots of solids, but now all of a sudden has stopped. I offer lots of varitey and he will take two or three bites if I am lucky then say all done and beg to nurse. What can I do? I have asked my ped but she says he is at an age for grazing. He is fine weight wise and otherwise healthy, although we think he is iron defiecient so we did some blood work. I don't know... Thoughts?

If you are trying to wean him off nursing, then just decline when he asks. If he's hungry he will eat more or come back later for some.

He's probably teething.  Don't force the issue and let him nurse.

My son went through a grazing spell for a while.

Now he's 1 1/2 and his good eating habits have returned.

I think this is typical toddler stuff. Just keep offering, maybe in small portions more frequently.

Mine did the same thing. He is 3 now and it takes him about 1 1/2 hrs to eat a meal. He will eat when hungry, toddlers are a bunch of fun.

I would be happy if ds would graze but he has almost totally given up eating altogether

As long as his weight and health aren't causing concern, just leave him be. Offer healthy meals and when he is hungry, he will eat.

Are you giving in and letting him nurse?

As oppose tletting hom starve, yes.I feel he is too young to understand "big" kids eat solids and babies nurse. I had planned to nurse him until he wanted to wean or around 2, whichever came first.
