Pleasure to be able to help you,
I would like to say the following things.
1. Children will start eating less in the second year of life, as they gain less weight and height as compared to the first year of life
2. They should be encouraged to try to self-feed, use a high chair and make sure that the child has a bowl to feed themselves with a spoon. The child will play and spill their food but this is fine. Also use separate bowl and spoon to help feed the child, this way they are fed but also gain some measure of self independence that they desire
3. Show to your doctor once you get an appointment, but don't worry too much about this,
I hope I’ve provided the information you were seeking. If you are happy with my service, your 5-star rating at this time is appreciated. A TIP would be even better! If you need more help, please let me know so l can continue to assist you.
