Q.

Baby refusing to eat

My son is only 10 months old. Used to be a big eater and we switched form Nan to novalac to lactogen. He prefers drinking his milk, juice, water, rooibos but refuses to eat anything. I have tried to change his menu and made him finger foods. He would bite on it and refuse to take another bite. He currently has 8 teeth and the pattern is that when he teethes he eats a lot. I have ran out of options what do I do?

Your baby son is probably feeling nice and full and satisfied on the Lactogen formula.He does not seem to be teething. Always offer him his food which must be mashed fine before he is given a bottle.
