    Default Fussy eater with a rash help???

    Hi hubbers
    Wondering if any of you have had this my DS 6 an a half months is fussy with everything!!! Ok so BF till 10days had major issues so FF ever since! Was very slowly gaining weight dropped down in percentile groups an hasn't moved back up saw CHN an doc then saw Pead who suggested change of milk an straight on solids he loved it an everything was great till he turned 6 months now he's gotten so fussy won't eat anything he liked before only fruit an milk sometimes he will take yogurt or weetbix but depends on his mood oh an his milk has to be cold or he won't touch it! He is teething and has a snotty nose but now he has this rash I've seen 2 docs they aren't worried but I am it only appears after food an I can't figure out if it's allergies cos I make sure each meal is different!?!? What do I do?

    6 and half months is still early, I don't think he is fussy I just don't think he is hungry or is ready for solids yet - maybe give him a break for a few days and see how he is then- is he drinking his formula? what have you been feeding him exactly?

    No that was the problem he stopped drinking which is why pead said solids ASAP he honestly did love eating before I know it's early an hated myself for feeding him solids so early but he's so small everything is puréed pear, apple, banana, baby rice, pumpkin, sweet potato and sweetcorn! He started on the baby rice and then we tried only organic jars which he loved then I started cooking for him but he wouldn't take it so I went back to the jars! If I only give him milk I would be lucky if he'll take 400mls a day!

    If he has a snotty nose and a cold he's probably got a sore throat and a bit of congestion. I don't feel like eating at that time and milk products make me nauseous when I have a cold.

    Try things like a chicken broth or cleansing type food like cold watermelon, cantaloupe.

    Has he been putting on weight? What about trying another formula? Goat or soy maybe? At that age milk is still very much is best source of nutrition , also he might be craving protein , have you tried eggs, meat or fish or other protein/iron rich foods?

    I thought about a cold but the doc checked it all out its just a runny nose.

    Only small amounts of weight I can't remember exactly but the nurse was telling me to get proteins into him too but he hates any kind of meat gags an then spits it up! I haven't tried eggs yet. I was thinking of changing milks too, he is so happy and energetic and the rash hasn't bothered him yet but if it is allergies I'm worried in case he has a severe reaction but I know if I stop or reduce solids he won't top up with milk! Maybe I'm just overacting and it's just he teeth but he's my first and I have no clue what I'm doing!
