Meal times and food…

Just a First Time Mum having a crisis over here 🫣 How on earth do you get a 1 year old to eat!?!!! He is SO fussy!

Eating

Hi everything! My little one is 11 months old and he has been teething for a little while now. 3 top finally broke but he has had a low grade fever, barely eats any solid if any at all (still drinking milk), sleepy extra extra clingy & fussy.

Gone off solids

My 7 month old has completely gone off her purées over the past 2 days and will only take her bottle. She’s not unwell at all but I think her bottom teeth are cutting through. Does anyone know if it’s normal for a baby to stop eating solids when getting teeth? I don’t want to take her to the doctor because she’s not...
