Q:

my baby is 7 months old. she was always eating well but from past 5 days she is not ready to open her mouth for food , inspite of giving her favourites. there is no gastric discomfort as well.
what could be the possible reason? and how do I make her have food ?
P.S- she's a very active child.

hello nida..
babies are moody..hence, it takes tym to understand them..sometimes they eat well sometimes they dnt even open there mouth..make sure tht u r not feeding her same food daily..try interesting tasty recipes..may be she ll eat..and as she is 7 months hope u r giving BF or FF too..plz continue tht..she ll eat fa sure..dont worry..try n try n be patient..👍

yes yes I am giving her different types of meal. including lots of variety.  yes she's on breastfeeding.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

then do BF both with scheduled time and on demand also..
and give her sometime they ll eat..dnt force too much

hi nida - it might be the heat - pls include fruits in diet. also baby's fav food changes at times. pls try something new that looks diff and interesting. or get her a new spoon or bowl or mat! u will be surprised how well these things work. take one of her fav toys and make it her food buddy!!!

it's ok nida for them not to eat . kids go thru phases of eating less food . try giving milk or biscuits or some fruit . due to weather also kids appetite might decrease . don't worry ur baby will get back to normal diet on a few days again .

Currently it's most likely the heat. Give cooled foods lots of liquids and also lots of fruits.
