Paediatrician

She must be checked by a doctor as this could be due to several causes such as tonsillitis or even meningitis for example.

Hi Kiks,

So what did the doctor say was the problem? Hopefully nothing serious!

If it is nothing medical, I would reduce her formula intake - and try and find creative ways to feed her. Go to www DOT babynet DOT co DOT za for some interesting recipes and meal suggestions. Maybe she is just bored with food!

Regards,
Mary
