    Default won't eat at 14 months!

    My guy is 14 months now, still nurses during the day from time to time but latley he only wants to nurse and won't eat food! What's going on? Any tips on getting him to eat more? I don't want to deny him milk or his bottle (which he takes before naps when I'm not around). It's driving me crazy!
    Thanks!

    Just keep offering a variety of healthy solids and model good eating habits (like sit-down family meals). That's all you can do. You can't force a kid to eat- nor should you. It's very normal for a baby to still get most of his nutrition from breastmilk until he's well over a year old. If your LO is intensifying his demand after being a good eater when it comes to solids, my guess is that he's either teething or going through a new developmental stage. Good news is that those things will pass.

    Hang in there, mama!
