Q.

Feeding - Worried

My daughter is 18months old and still on breast milk.She cries and refuses to eat when I feed her (solids).She eats solids very well when she is fed by a nanny or my sister.
I am even thinking to stop breast feeding her but she really loves breast milk.She refuses to take formula and she is losing weight.

Pls help because I am very worried and frustrated.

She is well into the time when she should be on a full normal diet with much less milk as part of the diet.Try her on the new Parmalat 1 to 2 year follow on milk which she will really like.If she won't take solids from you it is essential that her Nanny feeds her as she needs this nutrition especially as she is losing weight.
