My son is almost eleven months old and recently hes been very whiny and hardly eats anything other than his milk. He doesn't seem to be in any pain so im not sure what to do about getting him to eat. I've tried different fruits and veggies both pureed and in small soft pieces and nothing really works. My mom says he might be upset because I just recently became pregnant, has anyone ever heard anything about this? Any advice would be helpful.
The only thing I've ever heard of is pregnancy changing the taste of breast milk, so if you were nursing he may have some problems. Other than that, unless you are obviously showing I don't think there is any way that your son would know you are pregnant (and even with a big 9 month belly, he may not even necessarily think anything is up). My son is also 11 months and I am 3 months pregnant - he seems blissfully unaware of what is going on. Is his sleep any different or just his eating? Have you tried introducing any other types of finger foods or feeding them before giving him milk?
I wouldn't think that your son's behavior change is related to your pregnancy. For breastmilk, the taste does change a bit, I believe around 6 weeks. If he's not interested, he may be between growth spurts or he might not be feeling well- teething, ear ache, even a cold. If he's nursing/bottle feeding well, he might just be going on strike with solid foods for a while. If you don't think there is anything else influencing his disinterest in eating, I'd just keep offering it to him. Kids go through funny phases sometimes, and he might decide this stuff isn't so bad after all.
my 20 month old son is all of a sudden very clingy and he is a very cerious baby usally and likes to play outside with his toys and my boyfriends neice but for 4 days ( today being the 4rd day) he has been very clingy.. he has never been like this he will cry when i dont hold him and when im doing something like cleaning or even goin outside to throw away the trash he will scream like someone is hurtting him he has never been a needy baby he has always been the type of baby that liked to be alone and didnt really like being held.the other night had to be the worst i put him to bed around 9 and he cried until 12 34 am and as soon as i put him in the bed with me he stopped he has never slepted in bed with me as a toddler only as a nb.Me and my boy friend have heard that theres an old wives tell that babies get needy or can feel when their mothers are expecting but the thing is im not " at least i dont think im expecting" and if this isnt the case then why else would my son want to be so needy almost overnight so please help me to understand what could be going on with him thank you so much
and if i posted this in the wrong place dont comment me and tell me i just need answers
My son is five months and for about six weeks he's been crying and crying and I didn't know why. I would give him orajel, medicine, see if he was hungry or needed a papmer change and he would just keep crying. I would also rub him with an egg to check if he had ojo and no, he didn't have it. So just three day ago I found out I'm almost seven weeks pregnant.
