Mother's Forum

Nobody ever said being a mother would so bitter yet so SWEET!




Good day
  My baby is 7months old but have refuse to eat any food, things have tried giving her and she rejected.  Different types of milk from Sma gold down the list, have Googled home made food, some I got from your blog, have tried pap,dawa, different baby tin food, that's even the worst because she ends up popping blood so I stopped, tried dawa this time not as pap, but I blended it dry and make it as oat, bride custard, than I introduced family custard which she eat for 2weeks and stopped.

So far the family custard is the only food she eats with serious cry,  I have played,  shouted, beaten her for wia,  I have seen a doctor both private and public, they said she looks healthy I should keep trying things, for this change era. Hmmmmmm my people the only thing she takes without fight is water she can drink water like fish. Don't even say leave her when hungry catch her well she go eat because, she 

will never cry for hunger. Please mummies,doctors in the house help a sister, did I mention she stopped breastfeeding @ 2 months and she's my first child. New food I can try,  or anything medically I will appreciate as this whole thing is making me sad.  Thanks

Oh God! Since she drinks water, then maybe she likes liquid, give her tea, n add glucose to d water for energy. Make her pap or dawa more watery like water n see if she will drink it like water. Goodluck

Did you just said you are beating a 7month old? You are definitely sick in the head,how will the innocent child eat when no love is shown. Pamper her ,make the child smile and see if the baby will not eat.

Madam try cooking okro with plenty crayfish, fish and periwinkle (optional). Prepare soft eba and then try... Good luck

Virtuous woman said...

Introduce her to normal food,eBay and draw soup, very soft beans and yam, Amala. Some of these children love to eat solid food even at that young age. Try giving her while u are eating.

Kittygirl said...

Pap is still the way out. Add grinder groundnut and crayfish to the Pap with lots of milk. Force feed said time goes on he will take it with ease

Whatever you do, becarful with these two: charliz emeka and babatunde...Good luck!

Falz´s Wife said...

It also annoyed me when I saw the part where she mentioned beating her, I had to scroll up to check how old the child was again.

But i assume that by 'beating' she meant light spanking. Madam, you mean light spanking right? Anyway, I think you should follow Chidinma Grace's advice and make her pap and custard very light and watery. Also give her lots of tea.

Give her smoothies

Try regular adult food like okro or ogbono soup with pounded yam or gari. That's what my sister- in-law in America gave her son when he refused to take baby food and it worked. Some babies move from breastmilk or formula to adult food. Especially exclusively breast fed babies. You can also try Gerber apples and banana pudding or any other fruit pudding. Babies love the sweet taste.

This is the story of my motherhood. Poster my son was just like your child, he doesn't like food I try all the food just like u did. Water is his food, he even stop breast feeding @ 4monts and my first child as well. Today he eats everything, Don't worry keep trying there must be something she likes.

Honi-Mumi. med lab scientist (ikoyi)08033555673 said...

Mine is 8 months, he eats eba,wheat with okro or ogbono, egg yolk, mashed potatoes, indomie, avocado,ube,orange.pawpaw,very soft rice, mashed meat, fish, still drinks nan,tea.and breast milk. And almighty cerelac. But he doesn't like water or juice.

Mine stopped breastfeeding at 4months, all he wanted was solid. I tried every milk and cereals, he won't take. So I started with tea and he liked it, at 5/6 months he started taking okro soup. Then, my mum said I should try giving him milk first thing in the morning while he's still in bed, and that worked like magic, he can take full bottle (280ml) of milk in the morning. Just keep trying and you'll get there. Goodluck

Aptamil has a good taste and babies like it. Try aptamil. Also do watery cerelac in feeding bottle and give her. Like 2 spoons of cerelac in 150ml

Sonia Mac said...

Oh oh. I can very well relate with this. This is exactly what my first son did. But in his own case he wanted to continue breastfeeding after 6 months exclusive. He refused all foods offered him. It was not easy o. He's 2 now and still eats pap as his main food.


Like some one said above, try and force feed her with pap.



Meanwhile pls share in my joy as i thank God for the safe delivery of my son last week.

See babies stopping breast at 2and4 months,lucky mother's,my last child stopped breastfeeding at1year6months,I was enjoying because it made me loose weight,poster try adult food and tea.

Leema said...

Excuse me did you say she pooped blood? And you are still sitting down? Better take her to a specialist Dr preferable an old father Dr or abroad.
Her digestive tracks need to be checked . Where is the blood from? Is the food bruising her stomach or the passage and that is why she is drinking only liquids.
Above all pray all the way.
May God heal your baby.

Give her normal food. My mum said I was exactly like ur child, rejected everything. She had to start giving me eba when I was about six months cos that was d only thing I agreed to eat

lamirah fashion school Abuja 08032526875 5C4301AA said...

You can try draw soup like okro, ogbono with soft eba, semovita etc. Mashed sweet potatoe or irish potatoes with plenty fish.
Wash beans and peel like you want to make moi moi, i.e cook beans without the husk to a soft and smooth paste with fish. Mash and feed her.
Pap mixed with groundnut paste without pepper.
By the time you will try all these suggestion, she must have gotten to 10 months. Kids change all the time . Be hopful. Goodluck!

Use alom to wash her mouth 2ce in a week.let talk on whatapps 07087622324

Mama Afrika said...

My first child was like that. At this stage solid food should just be experimental, dont depend on it alone to satisfy her and do not force feed her it will only make matters worse. What ever cereal u choose to give her make sure its very watery and practically dripping off the spoon. I gave my first child formula till he was one. Also try cooked carrots and fruits puree. Babies usually love bananas. I assure you she will change just take it one step at a time. And dont beat or even spank her common she is a baby!!

Ur baby same as mine. I have don all he wouldn't nothing only breast milk he takes nd water.

Nothing to be worried about. I rushed my son to the hospital cos he's always vomiting blood. Doctor said the little man is fine. Babies can't pretend if he's not fine he won't be playing. Poster, my baby was just like yours. He vomits at will and has no interest in food at all. Just a try your best and leave the rest to God. I envy mother's that their children eats easily. Swallow food is preferably given to fussy eaters. Goodluck

Please ma, don't beat 7 month old. There may be a reason the baby isn't eating, like a major change. Was there a change in schedule? Did you change the baby's care giver or did you move?
If your answer is no, just keep trying. Every two hours, offer fluid. Have you tried Gerber products? Most babies love them, try Gerber yoghurt especially.
Hang in there mama. If you feel frustrated, keep baby in a safe place like the crib; go outside calm down and return. Babies respond to love Biko.

ify onyekwelu said...

Wow!!!!!! Congratulations ooo!
Kisses to baby.
Thanks to God for save delivery.

Biko vomit is different from poop. You know how your baby is doing by examining the poop. Bloody poo is a no- no. Get that baby to the Pediatrician pronto.

My suggestion too! U can try ewedu with smoked sardine fish and light semo or amala

Abeg don't toy with your child's kidney by putting alum in her mouth o. I advise u to sweeten her pap with some sugar when u r still cooking it. Not a lot,just like u will sweeten your own pap,then when cool n u r ready to feed,add S.M. A,the appropriate type for her age. It takes a while for them to take semi-solids well.but persistence is key. Feed her every 3hrs. At most get an E. N.T surgeon to examine her throat to be sure she doesn't have painful swollen tonsils which will also prevent her from enjoying swallowing. All d best.

Starjoy said...

My second child was like that, I tried everything called baby food mba she will not accept till I started giving smoothies like semo, avalaible, with okro, ewedu or ogbono prepared with titus fish with enough crayfish hmmm she liked it so much. 10 months she don de run up and down.

Anonymous said...

Try aptanail milk

Anonymous said...

Madam, no case can be as bad as my first son's. He survived on almost only water. He would run and hide when his food was being made. I got tired of seeing doctors because of his inability to eat. But he survived. Now 14 years,although he still doesn't eat like others, he is the strongest of my children and also very intelligent at school. So relax, the child would be OK.

Nnechi Spicy. said...

Hi. Why don't you try solids? My big sis was like that. She transited from breastmilk to solids at 4months. She didn't like cereals and she's alive, strong and healthy. Make okro with fresh or smoked titus, palm oil and lots of crayfish. Give her with semo or amala. The mashed potatoes with titus fish. Make the potatoes like porridge and a little runny. Come back and testify.
Goodluck

That child wants Table food o. Eba or pounder yam and okro soup start with that.my baby was like that he didn't like cereal or milk but can eat any thing we eat.If it is rice Just mash it up a little and make it soft by adding butter.

Sonia Mac said...

Thanks lots dearies.

Monet said...

Poumded yam and ogbono soup. She go believe!

Anonymous said...

Try Cypri Gold syrup for babies. U'll be glad u did. My daughter was worse,but now she get angry if food doesn't get ready in time. Just 2.5mls daily. Once the baby start eating well,reduce it to thrice a week cos it makes the child sleep too.

Anonymous said...

Mine too was like that. I tried solid food and she was taking it. She is 3yrs now and still takes solid food to school.

Anonymous said...

Try give her solid goods with draw soup, like Amala & Ewedu with blended crayfish,locust beans & Titus fish in it.

Mao Akuh said...

Start giving her swallow with okra/ogbono and fish.
