    Default Bub not eating much-blw

    Dd is almost 11 mmonths and doesnt eat much at all not even bottles even if we offer it to her.

    Im in need for some ideas to try and make her meals more appetising as she is becoming fussy ive noticed over past few weeks. (Her teeth are coming through).

    I dont feel like she is getting enough nutrients at all lately ive just been doing a platter.

    We did blw with DS, and when he was teething he didn't want to chew anything really. I would just purée his food during those times. Even sucking his bottle would hurt his gums so he would eat and drink a little less when teething. Bottles with easy flow teats helped.

    Perhaps softer foods?

    Salt reduced baked beans. Scrambled eggs. Omelettes. Bananas.

    DS has gone on a bit of a veg strike at the moment so I have to sneak them in with things like zucchini slice, spaghetti bog

    She refuses to let us feed her.

    I found pouches were great when Ds2 was on a strike.
    You can buy reusable ones and just put his dinner in a blender then he can suck it out of the pouch himself.
    I still do it now and he is 13 months.

    Avocado spread on toast fingers or cruskits.

    Is she eating when you are, I found if I took food off my plate and passed it to DD3 she was more likely to want it, we would talk about the food we were eating as a way of encouraging DD3 to eat more variety.

    The reusable pouches are great, I still use My Lil Pouches for yoghurt in the younger 2's lunchboxes.

    Put bub on your lap and see if she'll eat from *your* plate. Of course, make sure that you are eating something she can eat.

    You can eat (bub and adult) anything with fingers, especially if your main aim is feeding not keeping things clean.

    Scrambled eggs for example. Scramble two/three eggs with some olive oil, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese for extra flavour. No extra salt. Spread it out on your plate, sprinkle a diced tomato on top, put bub on your lap, and start eating with your fingers. She'll most likely follow your lead.

    When my kids are going through a fussy stage I give them liquid multi vitamin for my own piece of mind.
    For ds' teething he preferred puréed cold foods.(we also did blw) Wouldn't eat anything warmed up. He was not interested in milk but would eat yoghurt by the bucket.
    Get bub to eat at family meal times, offer from your plate (so ur not wasting food if bub isn't interested)
    try diff textures. Make up a basic cheese sauce and use it as a 'dip' for veggies, pene pasta.
    Dont go to too much trouble and be offering a whole heap of new foods or what not. Waste of time. Babies won't starve themselves and will eat when they want. It's a stage and it will pass.

    Also to add to the above with children this age you need to look at their nutrient intake over the course of a week, not just individual days. Hopefully that should ease your mind a bit!
