Not eating 9 almost 10 month old.

Hey mommas!! I am super stressed as my little one is not eating the same as he used to.. he used to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and now barely eats anything except his cereal snacks & some of our food. He is breast fed but I feel like (I bet any mom feels) that he Is not getting enough. ALSO! What do I do with the purées I’ve bought that he won’t eat?? ive tried many times and he still won’t eat them..... I want to give to those who need and not waste. HELP

    Is this a regular thing or is this just as of the last few days? I ask because my son typically loses his appetite when teething! Could that be it? If so, his appetite should return after a few days! Try offering foods that feel good on the gums. Frozen waffle, celery stick, popsicle etc. often the pain comes a week or even 2 before a tooth begins to erupt!

    Just for the last week he’s been that way and he has been getting 2 more teeth. So that makes so much sense!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! :D

    He may also just be over purees. It may be time to up the table foods, try frozen vegetables, like peas, carrots and corn, they are all small and may feel good on his sore gums

    I would say it’s teething or a purée strike!! My daughter eats way less when teething but right around this age she also refused ALL puréed foods and only wanted regular food!!!

    Lol it’s gotta be both of those and I’m so glad that it’s not something uncommon! Thank you!
