    1yr old refused solids after sickness

    My 11mths 3wk old baby recently had roseola fever and rash. However even after getting well for 1 week+ already, she has completely lost interest in her main solids meal, which is mainly congee. She is still willing to eat some bread though.
    I am at my wits end as she has been mainly just drinking breast milk now for almost 1 week already! Is this common for baby that just got well from sickness? I am worried as a first time mom and seeing her getting thinner.
    Any suggestions, perhaps on the menu front..? thanks!!

    yes, it is common, but also, have you considered giving her things to eat instead of congee?

    by the age of your child, you should be giving her the same foods you eat, just in smaller pieces and quantity.

    she could be bored from just having congee everyday. (i know i would be! i HATE the stuff! LOL)
