DD has been unwell for almost a week, very congested and unsettled - all that fun stuff. She's been a little off her food but still eating at each meal, maybe half her normal amount. Today she seems much better, finally had a decent day sleep after days of cat naps, but she's refusing to eat anything. She even refused banana which she usually goes nuts for.
Is this normal? Since she seems much better today I would have expected her to eat more not less??

DS did this after being sick for a while.
I tried spoon feeding him puréed fruit and he ate it.
Is she drinking plenty?

It might take 3-5 days for appetite to improve. Also depending on what your bub had, her taste may have been affected.

When my ds 13m was sick very similar to your bub, he was off his food as well and only drinking about half his bottles. When he tried to eat i think he found it difficult to swallow as well or it was irritating his throat so he also gagged and threw up a few times. Once he was better his appetite really picked up so i think he was making up for the lack of eating. Hope your little one starts eating more soon.

My 15 month old DD does this when she is sick or teething. When she does this, I give her puréed foods as she will eat more of them than finger foods. It may take a little while for their appetite to come back.

I've got a banana freezing at the moment so I'll put that through the whizz (it turns into a sort of banana soft serve which she loves) and see if she'll eat that.
I've noticed today she's also sticking her tongue out a lot and it looks like it has a kind of white film on it. Might be from her immune system copping a beating and could be making food taste yuck I guess.

Have you had her checked by a doctor for tonsilitis or an ear infection?
