Feeding a one year old
Hi,
My daughter is turining one in 2 weeks and currently weighs 19 pounds. However, since the past one week she refuses to eat any food and her formula-milk inkate has also dropped.
I am really scared since she simply refuses to even open her mouth to have the food. We tried giving her all kinds of food like rice, chicken, potatoes, vegetables, but she will just not eat.
Please help me as I am scared and very depressed about his situation.....
Thank you!

I would contact your pediatrician - especially since her formula intake has dropped.  It could mean nothing or something else could be going on.  My one year old has a strange diet.  He's 15 1/2 months old and is still on formula as he won't at a steady diet of table foods yet so his pedi keeps him on formula until his diet improves.

He won't eat mashed potatoes, bananas, heck any fruit except cantalope.  he won't eat many veggies as well.  His core diet is cantalope, cottage cheese and whole wheat toast - not very much.   He's currently enjoying hot turkey/swiss cheese w/Italian dressing sandwiches.  He had one at a restaurant & loved it so I'm making it at home.  He won't consistently eat pasta either.

I don't want to get into a contest or battle of the wills w/him over food because ultimately he will eat what he wants at this age.  I hope your pediatrician can shed some light on what's going on w/your daughter. I'm curious at to what he/she'll say.   Please post and let us know.  for now, I would try a few foods at a time.  I've learned thatone day they'll eat chicken for example and the next time, they'll turn their noses up at it.  Hang in there! - jen
