Not eating

Hi, doc i have a 16 months old baby boy. The problem he doesn''t like to eat solids, we have tried everything but after few spoons he spits it out. My concern is he like to eat Danone yogurth a lot and he doesn''t like milk he was drinking Nido but now he drinks Rooibos tea all the time. And lastly at night he sleeps late and is restless and wakes up early. Please help

It is important to know about your baby boy's weight to see if there is any need for concern about his weight. He cannot just drink rooibos as it does not have sufficient food value. Many children of this age prefer to have their food made very soft, so try to puree the food you offer your son amd see if he will eat this kind of food. In addition try him on a good tasting milk for this age group such as Parmalat First Growth milk.
