View Full Version : 9 mo old won't eat anymore
11-21-2010, 06:33 PM
my dd's always been a really good eater, eats a whole jar of baby food for every meal (first strained, now stage 2 variety, baby cereal, and yogurt and cottage cheese) she also eats cheerios and toast. But for thepast few days she won't eat anything, and barely drinks her bottles. She eats a few bites, then fusses and cries and won't eat anymore. She seems tired all the time and barely ever naps-she used to nap so well. I know she won't eat solids because she's so tired, but what else could be the problem, any suggestions?

You said she will not eat and doesn't sleep. Have you tried giving her Tylenol or Motrin, maybe she is teething and can't sleep/eat due to the pain. For teething also try cold teethers or washcloths. Rubbing on her gums with a finger may also help.
How is her behavior otherwise? Is she excessively cranky or cries more than normal, is she lethargic, have her bowel habits changed? If she isn't doing better after a single does of Tylenol or Motrin or if you are seeing othe worry signs I would consider calling her doctor.
