14 month old refusing to eat porridge

My baby girl is refusing to eat her porridge.what other food can I give her which will not choke her.All she wants is her milk and water.We tried punishing her and not give her the bottle during the day.How many meals and at what intervals should I be feeding her

I am worried.

Your daughter seems to prefer soft foods still which is quite common in this age group.Do not punish her about not eating as she is far too young to understand why you are cross with her. Be very patient and give her the foods she seems to like.Look on our Parenting site on Health24 for more advice.

My daughter also dont eat porridge, after trying so many different kinds I gave up and give her yogurt instead. She loves it. Good luck!
