Not eating proper food
My son was 8 months old before he use to eat properly and now he is refuses to take food and cries. Feeding through spoon or hand he just close his mouth. I am still breast feeding him. Is this the normal behaviour.??

Children do go through episodes of reduced appetite and spurts of increase intake during their growth spurts. Many times during and post infections the appetite does go down which will recover eventually. Its important to make feeding a pleasurable process both for the parent and child and not a compulsory chore. Every child eats to his or her stomachs content and not the parents heart content.
