Once consult your paediatric expert and ask for deworming​.. Sometimes deworming is required. If baby is active and healthy then no need to worry... Baby weight depends on birth weight and height. Some kids will try to only drink..that easy. And if baby is teething then also they don't like to have anything.

Hi shabnam, it's exactly the same case with my kids who are 16 months. They don't eat anything either. It's difficult to feed them a third bite after they finish two. So now, I break down their meals. I give them something to eat in every few hours as I know they won't eat the entire meal all at once. Also focus more on things that your child likes eating be it finger food, juicy fruits etc. If the child is active and not losing weight as such then need not worry. Try to make their meal times interesting like involving them in games or singing rhymes for them.

thank u charu , il  try that and hopefully it all help.
