baby lost appetite

Hi,
I have an 8 month old baby who has been on solid food since she was 5 months. she was eating fine but suddenly as she turned 8 months she refuses food of any sort.
Kindly suggest some remedy to increase her appetite as well as for teething

Thanks

Is she irritable?

yes she is irritable and cranky more than she was before. Also earlier she enjoyed food and infact refused milk and now she simply refuses any food but has milk

Give her Chamomilla 30.
2 dose (one in the morning and second in the night)for 3 days.
Tell me after 3 days.

thanks for your prompt reply. Maybe I should have mentioned earlier that my entire family has grown up on homeopathy so even for my daughter I give mainly homeopathy since she was a new born. I have been giving her Chamomila 6 daily, should I switch to 30 and inform you of the result?
Also she is having Bio 21 aswell

Thanks

You should give Chamomilla 30.
And continue Bio 21.But how many times do u give her Bio 21?
Give Bio 21 2 times a day.
Then inform me after 3 days.

just a quick question- she is passing hard stool with great difficulty since she has stopped eating. will chamo help that aswell or should i give something else for that?
 
sandy1978 8 years ago
Instead giving her Chamomilla,give her NUX 30, 2 dose (5-6 globules as I mentioned)one in the morning and second at night for 3 days.
Give her banana and also plenty of water.

kindly tell me which of the remedies you have suggested is for increasing her appetite?
 
sandy1978 8 years ago
Actually you didn't mention the complaint of hard stool.
So Nux vomica 30 is a medicine for loss of appetite and also for hard stool.
So give her NUX 30, 2 dose (5-6 globules as I mentioned)one in the morning and second at night for 3 days.
