I hope someone can help me! lol
My 20 month old son is currently refusing most foods (even fruit of which he normally eats lots!) which i think is most likely due to teething (this time anyway).
My dilema is this - when he refuses a meal should i offer an alternative? I've read that i shouldn't as he will have me doing this everytime he doesn't want what i have cooked and that a hungry baby will eat eventually. However, this approach doesn't really sit right with me, especially if there is a chance that he is off his food due to teething. He is always guaranteed to eat soft cheese and bread and would eat this and only this if i allowed him to.
We did baby-led weaning and so he was very open to new foods as a baby but since becoming a toddler he seems to be so picky and the baby-led approach doesn't seem to have helped at all, althoiugh i will always be glad we did this as we all approach food and meal times with a healthy AP attitude.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
BTW, he is still bf on demand but i don't think he takes that much milk to have a major impact on his appetite.
