    Milanias gone from eating everything- to nothing. Most days I can barely get anything to pass her lips. We went to the place that we're getting married today for lunch, she's eaten nothing since breakfast at 7 despite offering her stuff. We went up to get food (was a massive carvery) she was pointing at the food and going "mmmmmmmm" so we plated her up some, placed her in the high chair- & all hell broke loose! She went into total melt down screaming and crying so OH and I passed her between us until she settled. Once she had I tried to give her some food but she wasn't interested. I place a piece of chicken to her lips and she screamed... & then projectile vommited all over me! White jeans and blackcurrant juice really don't mix FYI!! I'm literally at my wits end. I know if I offered her sweets or ice cream she would've eaten them no issues but just won't eat normal food. Yesterday all she ate was her breakfast, half a banana & 1 boiled potato. That's it. Friday she barely ate her breakfast, wouldn't eat any snacks or lunch & then ate 2 rice cakes at nursery, no dinner- she chucked it on the floor. At 16 months she weighs 19lb and is drowning in 9-12 month clothes. I really don't know what to do. She doesn't get sweets or desert often- we don't eat them ourselves so we don't have them in the house. We eat really clean as OH is a bodybuilder. If we do have a pig out its usually a Saturday night when she's in bed so she doesn't see. I really don't know what to do, do I ring the health visitor and ask? Or just persevere?

    I know it's hard but try not to worry. Children go through phases, both of mine did this too. I honestly believe children eat what they need to eat. If she normally eats breakfast I would try and fill her up on this, then if she doesn't eat much else in the day at least you know she has had something.
    Phone the health visitor if you are really worried, but I think she will probably just start eating again as quickly as she stopped!

    Bee is soon to be 17m and she weighed 19lb 4oz yesterday... although she is quite long so her 12-18m stuff fits.

    She goes through phases with her eating and we're currently in a 'thrown everything on the floor' phase. So freaking annoying.

    I know it's a phase but it's still so frustrating.
