8 Month Old Not Eating

Nick - April 29

My son is 8 months old and for the past couple weeks he has not been eating his solid foods very well. He was eating 2-3 jars of stage 2 food, dinner mixed with baked potato or rice, and a bowl of cereal and fruit before bed, peices of fruit or part of whatever we were eating, gerber puffs or other snacks in between meals and 3 bottles. Now if he takes a container of fruit for lunch, it is a good day. He will not eat dinner or cereal. It is not that he doesn't like it, because he will not even open his mouth. He is not sick and is very happy and has 5 teeth. Has anyone had this problem?

My daughter did the same thing about 3 weeks ago. She is 8 months as well. All of a sudden it was like she wasn't hungry. In the past week she has cut a tooth, and another 2 are on the way....I'm gussing it was that, but I'm not sure.....

A few weeks ago my daughter wasnt eating well, now she is crawling she is getting better, she is gonna be 11 mths now... I try not to sress as some days she does eat better than others and i do recall times having to trick her and pretend i was gonna give her a drink just to get a mouthful in, try not to worry as they do come good again and eat....

Thanks for your help. I was just getting so frustrated with all of the jars of food I was throwing out. Yesterday he ate like he used to, so hopefully he is back on track.
