Eating Habits

Hi Doc,
My LG 11 months, weighing about 8.6Kgs refuses to eat. She will only eat certain things like cereal, cerealac mixed vegetable, yogurt and chicken a la king purity. She will not eat the food that I cook. And then she wakes up at least twice for her bottle at nite. I have tried so many things to get her to eat  eating with us  giving her her own palte to eat from but nothing works.

Please help

Your baby is still young. The main thing to know is whether her weight is normal for her age.Many babies of this age are not good eaters or have definite food preferenceas as your baby girl has.She may prefer very finely mashed or pureed food still so try this. Let her eat what she will eat and gradually introduce new foods one at a time and see what she chooses to eat. Make sure that her nose is not blocked as this can be another reason for babies not to eat well.
