    Default Not eating/drinkin much help!!!

    Alexa was a really good eater & drinker up to a few days ago... she is 21 months (19 corrected)

    She would have a bottle (milk) in the morning, one with her day sleep & one at night... she is not not having/refusing all bottles...

    She has also stopped eating alot... she is really fussy & will only eat a little it of something then start spitting it out & rubbing her tounge/mouth with her hand...

    She is still drinking water & watered down furit juice... but not as much as she was...

    it has been very hot here lately & i dont know if it is the weather , her being unwell (all seems fine!)... or if she is just being a stubborn wee tart ...



    anyone else had this happen....

    i put it down to the heat (which sounds backwards)
    but dd has been the same - only wanting 4 feeds not 5 a day not not really interested in her solids.
    But will still sleep the night through!

    Mitch, I think this is pretty common around that age. It could either be the heat, or just a "fussy period". Around that age their requirement for food does seem to drop for some reason, maybe because their growth rate slows or something. I wouldn't worry too much about it. The worst thing you can do is be stressy about it, as it can make them eat even less.
