Force feeding is not recommended dear. Try to figure out why she is not interested in food. Is baby teething or what.
Hi its not correct. Please stop it right away, it will create aversion towards food and she will be like this forever.
Back in olden days force feeding was considered as punishment, Imagine someone forcing you to have food though you are not hungry.. How do you feel?
Now let's talk about " Force Feeding" the baby, How many of us decide 1 cup of rice is how much the baby should eat? By hook or by crook we feed the entire bowl. By either distract feeding or by force feeding.. Force feeding is our culture; " Aur thoda?" We are always kept 1 puri or 1 dosa extra by our moms though we keep saying we are full. We end up eating that and this is considered to be love for us. But actually it isn't.. "Feeding our baby to their hunger is love ", this way we are teaching our kids to eat only when they are hungry and not when they are upset, angry, bored etc.
We are asked to respect baby's hunger right from the beginning and that is why " Feed on demand " concept came in. We feed the baby only when they are hungry and give cues but why don't we follow it when give solids? Imagine someone keeps bringing the spoon in front of you with the food though you don't want to eat? Respect the baby. Let's not decide what is the correct quantity for the baby. Force feeding will bring aversion towards food as they grow.. When the baby turns its head away from the spoon stop right there, Try offering after few minutes if they still turn their face or push the spoon away please stop right there.
I don't distract feed or force feed Atarah, We are particular about her way of eating and we stop the moment she pushes the spoon. She is a moderate eater and I'm sure she will never over eat. I have also written a post on distracted feeding, attaching the link here.http://app.babychakra.com/feedpost/51848?ref=Re22625&c=app_share&pid=android_consumer&
