Q.

EATING DISODER

My baby is nine month old and she does not want to eat. She is not sick or anything she is playing like nobody's business. She is crawling, two teeth, walking with the walls and chairs. She looks very healthy but she does not want food, not to mention cereals and purity. I am bottle feeding her and she likes it too much. I tried to give her vidaylene but it seems her system is used to it and it's not working anymore. Before she used to eat a lot. She wanted to eat just about everything she sees but now it has changed. What amazes me is that she is very hyperactive and does not loose weight.
What can I do to get her into eating again

Chidlren often go through phases where they eat very little. The most important thing is to ensure that they are otherwise well (energetic and playful) and continue to gain weight as expected. If this is the case (as it seems to be), then there is no need to worry, force her to eat or try to seduce her with unhealthy alternatives.
