    Durga,
    I had gone through and still going through this phase. As they learnt to escape from food, we can't catch them. Try to remove Walker for a while during eating session, you just hold him and try feed him.
    Before 2 hours to food, dont feed him anything. If he is not at all eating properly, try to stop milk for a day or two, his apetitie will come back and will eat good amount.
    Never try to forcefully feed him.

    forget 11 month old, i cant think of feeding my 8 month old without her highchair. it does bring discipline into them, n once i put her in it she knows its mealtime. u do get toys with vacuum suction at the base,i stick them onto the highchair tray and feed her.
    she enjoys eating like an adult, and also enjoys finger foods. get one, u wont regret!

    hai durga
    I had the same problem with my baby boy. I'ts quite common. dont force food in to him let him get hungry. try feeding him parturised milk with turmeric and ajwain boiled in it in the night or early in the morning. this improoves digetion and cleanses the system. never let him roam arround while having food...u'll have a very tough time in the future if you allow it. see what interests him and make him sit down for food.
    chill.
    karuna.

    Thanku priya and loony,

    can u suggest any high chair ,i had seen fisher price and its costly about 5k,how about booster to toddler seat..its around 2k ...

    doc said to give him egg yolk..i tried to give him by mixing it with rasam rice...he refuses ,any idea of any other receipe?

    As he doesnot eat any fruits ..can i mash them and mix in formula milk,so it serves both purposes...i didnot start outside milk(cow or buffalo)..only using lactogen formula milk since 2 days..he even refuses that :(

    Hi

    Even iam facing the same problem offlate.Thing is he is 19mths old , and i regret for not using the high chair all these days . He sometimes sits at one place and eat,but sometimes wants me to take him and roam around by showing cats, crows etccc. I hate this habit , but couldnt avoid. Can i start using high chair for him now?.Will he get acustomed? Also suggest good brand, for toddlers high chair and quite reasonable at cost too.

    At times when i see the post wherein mothers are very proactive in researching and finding ways by using best products for their child , i feel low that as if iam not that much proactive and sometimes not a good mother either :((
