My son just turned nine months and was eating solids pretty good twice a day, now for about 4 days he does not want to eat at all. all he does is nurse. I will offer it to him and he pushes my hand away. this is not normal to me what should I do?

Not worry :)

Maybe he is teething, maybe he wants to feed himself? As long as he is nursing frequently and you're still offering solids, I wouldn't worry at all.

He's 9 months so solids aren't really important nutritionally at this point. Don't worry about it! My son is 9 months 3 weeks, he has not eaten solids yet.

Just follow his lead. 9 months can be a growth spurt when he needs more milk plus solids are only dessert till a year

Just nurse him. Babies are awesome at telling us what they need - if he's saying no food, no food is fine. :)

It may not be normal to your experience,... but it's 100% normal.

Sounds like a growth spurt :) he needs more milk and is programming you to make it! Don't worry... follow his lead. When he is ready for solids you'll know :)

Totally normal! All 3 of my kids would go for days not wanting solids at that age. It can be for many different reasons (teething, fighting a cold), but he reason doesn't really matter. Just listen to your baby, he will let you know when he is ready for more food!
