shes had purees for 2 months now and was doing really well,on 3 meals a day, last 3 days though when i try to feed her shes just refuses to open her mouth and cries. still taking milk ok but i just feel like we have gone back to the beginning.
anybody else gone through this? how long does it last?

Never had this but would it be worth giving her finger foods instead of purees for a few days. Just to give her the taste for it again. Hope someone comes along with some good advice x

Is she teething? My son refused milk and food for 8 days when he cut his first two teeth.

What TP said, Molly was always a nightmare with food when teething and lived off milk for a while. I would also try finger food at this stage just to see if it catches her interest.

im not sure if shes teething. she has 2 bottom teeth already, i think the top ones are on there way but they dont feel like they are ready to cut. her cheeks are a bit red though so maybe.
iv been trying finger foods, but she doesnt actually eat much of it.

My eldest did this from pretty much the get go so we went down the blw route instead. Maybe offer finger foods instead - it might be she's just trying to assert her independence. My HV once told me that they won't let themselves go hungry x

A refuses food when he is teething. We usually go through a week of eating only bananas, then back to normal, and a few days later he'll get another tooth.
As long as she is still having milk I wouldn't worry too much. We had to take A to the Dr last week as he's been unwell and not eating and she said that as long as he's taking fluids not to worry.

I would offer finger foods and not worry too much about how much actually goes in as long as she is having 18-20oz milk. I used to stress about my first not eating much until my hv told me to remember "food is fun till after 1" i.e. they still get most of their nutrition through milk up to a year. I used to stress out at every mealtime with G and i swear thats why she is so fussy now.
