My son only had six spoonfuls of weetbix,some yoghurt and custard and breastmilk-he is refusing all food, I am worried as he already is in the 3% percentigle range and I cant afford him to be losing weight. Can anyone give some advice-he is refusing to eat.

I think that's ok actually. lots of babies have less than what he's having at the moment. he's getting nutrients from breastmilk. I'd keep on with panadol/nurofen and keep offering him soft foods.

Cold foods are good too, like homemade frozen yogurt.

Sounds ok to me too, my DD eats lots less than that some days. She goes off food when teething too, like PP said cold soft foods seem to be good so purée fruit straight from the fridge is often a winner for us.

I gave our son smoothies when he had a bad episode of teething and didn't want hard foods - poor thing would put things in his mouth and then straight out again. He obviously wanted to eat but had a sore mouth. Banana, yoghurt and green stuff like avo/spinach.
