Infant having eating problems. Habit of eating semisolid foods. Will this go away as he grows up?

Hi... i ve gotta 22 months old son and i have extreme feeding issues. He never eats anything solid nor shows any signs of interest towards food. Its always a difficult task to make him feed or eat anything. He throws up anything that is forced. He eats only semi solid foods or purees put in a blender. That too if he gags in between he ll throw up everything that he had had. My life itself is getting more and more difficult day by day. My husband s family history has serious acidity issues. Am not sure whether he has inherited them. Everytime i ask a pediatrician they dont prescribe medicines nor pay attention to these. They feel things would change as he grows. To me things are only getting worse as he grows. Please help anyone..

If he is on Breast feeding, you should stop gradually.
Avoid out side fast food etc.

General Principal:
1.     Since the baby is used to the taste of milk alone, it is better accepted if the food is
mixed with milk.
2.     He should encourage to feed, but should never be forced, as this creates an aversion to
3.     Give small quantity of food, gradually increased as per demand.
4.     If he rejects any food item, it should be stopped, and may be reintroduce a week or two later.
5.     It is preferable to introduce only one new food a week, so that intolerance can be spotted.

NOTE: Sometimes its very difficult to accept new food, so at time try one type of food for several days.

I would advise:
Check his weight .
Supplements- vitamin/calcium/iron,

I Wish Your Baby Good Health
