One year old won’t eat

Anonymous

Anyone have/had a one year old who basically refuses to eat anything? It’s been almost 3 weeks and my sons usually a good eater but he suddenly refuses almost everything besides yogurt. He won’t drink water or milk too. He hasn’t been sick or anything. Advice please? How can I get him t eat more

    It sounds like teething except for the part about how he won’t drink!! That sounds worrisome. My daughter hates to eat food when she’s teething and will mostly drink milk and eat cold fruits until the tooth breaks.

    Smoothie time! Can you make some smoothies with the yogurt maybe? Add other fruits/veggies that taste good with the yogurt. Or make an icy? Smoothie, then freeze and eat like Italian ice?

    3 Weeks seems rather long, best to check with his pediatrician. Babies often go through periods of dislike towards certain food but if switching hasn’t helped, pls do check with the md. My little guy also has periods where he refuses anything but for a certain food item, but it doesn’t last long.

    I would say teething... but yes 3 weeks is a pretty long time

    Right around 11.5 months to almost 13 months my daughter started cutting all 4 remaining front teeth. Then starting at 15 months for another 4 weeks she cut all of her first molars. So it’s possible it’s teething but I would have him checked out. It could be an ear infection associated with teething or something like that, and for me I’d just want to know for sure that everything is okay. Good luck!!

    Have you tried distracting him with your phone? When my 14 month old goes through phases of refusing food I’ll put Daniel tiger or Sesame Street on my phone and it distracts her long enough for me to feed her
