Hi..my baby was born prematurely at 35 weeks. Hhe is now 15 months. His appetite is decreasing day by day and he vomits a lot. He is not eating chunk food. Even if a small lump comes. He gags and throws out everything. I always tey to give him bites of bread/ roti/ idli but he puts in mouths , do choking kind of action and vomits out the previous meals. I am having a tough time. His weight is also less. Pls help

Hey Anisha, I understand your concern and also the way you are putting things is wonderful As a mom you are doing your best. Over here we can look at it from 2 steps. 1. Probably you can stop offering water inbetween meals. 2. If you are offering him a bottle for feeding milk. Please it will be good if your stop it

Foods like potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, dal, ghee, ragi, almonds, yogurt, eggs and milk help the baby to gain weight. Please take a pediatricians' suggestion before you start any of these foods. Let your kid enjoy these foods on his own. Even if he smashes it its ok.

Earlier he used to show interest but now be doesn't show any interest in food. He pushes the hand away when i try to feed. He is not eating himself also

Don't force feed try simple foods like moong dal khicdi , vegetable and fruit puree, soups, dals, mashed sweet potato , eggs mash. That might help . You will find all these recipes on my profile use that if u need
