Feeding babies: It is common for babies to get stubborn and not ant to eat what they previously dis. You can not force them as this will just make it worse. Sometimes focusing just on them during mealtime helps, playing little games with them helps, making it fun. Giving him finger foods that are not a choke hazard, and above all being patient.
