My 16 month old son has 4 teeth (only 1 all the way through). At 15.5 months he didn't have any and he was a pretty good eater (I spoonfed him the majority of his food but he also ate a variety of finger foods as well). Now he won't let me feed him. He wants to do it himself but he barely eats. He takes forever to eat the smallest piece of food and then often ends up throwing everything onto the floor. He doesn't feed himself with a spoon yet (although he is beginning to try a little). I'm concerned about him because he is already thin and he used to eat WAY more than this. Yesterday and today he's barely had anything at all. I'm just wondering what other people do to help with issues like this? As an aside he is still breastfeeding on demand and usually feeds upon waking, once in the am, before and often during his afternoon nap and before bed and sometimes 1-2 times throughout the night. The only other thing he drinks is water from a sippy cup and he really doesn't drink much water at all.
