Katie has been at nursery fulltime for nearly a month now.

Since she has been there she has had a respiratory infection, a sickness bug and about 2 colds!

I was expecting all this sort of thing, especially as she is still teething.

Last week the nursery staff expressed concern as she wasn't drinking any fluids....she's fine drinking her juice at home and there were no problems over the weekend.

Today my partner picked her up from nursery and was told by the staff that they're now concerned as she has been refusing to eat most of her meals and this is now leading her two little friends to follow suit.

I don't know what we can do to sort this out.....at home she eats fine and this evening, as she hadn't eaten at nursery, I did her a small tea with us, mash potato, baby sweetcorn, sugar snap peas and some coley fish. She troughed it all down as normal.

I don't know why she's refusing at nursery as they're not feeding her anything she hasn't had at home!!

All I can think it can be is that she's still getting over the bugs and stuff (She tends to go off everything when she's poorly), or because she's teething (she has a molar coming through at the mo)...or because she's just still adjusting to being at nursery and is maybe missing her Dad and I.

Any ideas??

I haven't really been worrying about her as she is fine and happy in herself, I went in and spoke to them on Friday and said she's probably off things as she's just getting over a cold and when she's ill she tends to refuse most things.

I think I'm going to send her in with her beaker from home with juice in it and see if that helps with the drinking.

My partner was getting stressed about it as they always seemed to be collaring him and making him feel as if it was a huge problem!

I must remember to get a marker pen for it on the way home as things do have a habit of going walkies there!

We've told them that there are certain foods she will refuse, baked beans, tomato ketchup are two of them...but they still seem to be trying to get her to eat them!
