  • My lo was a bit like this when I first started to put her in her high chair at around 6 months old. She's now nearly 1 and still sometimes complains when I put her in it bu she will eat her food.
    Have you tried feeding your lo on your knee just for a few minutes then put her in the chair. That worked for me until I could put her straight into the chair. I don't know what to suggest about the brekkie. If she wont eat you can't force her no matter what your hv is saying!!
    Would she eat a yogurt or some fruit? I suppose you have tried all that! Sorry I can't really help you too much with that one.
  • Does she have anything to play with in the high chair? My lo loves sitting in hers playing until I give her some food.
