Dear Alina,

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,

:)

Hi,

I am located in Chandigarh, North India :)

For the question about spinal surgery,, you would need to create a new question since as per the TOS of the website - a different question needs to be created separately..
