Babies are the most moody creatures ever present on the planet Earth. Making them do something that is against their wish or when their mood is not set, can be as heavy a task as moving a wall. Kids then tend to become irritated and frustrated which in turn effects your mood as your energy gets drained out in the process of making your baby less cranky.

This problem mainly arises when the time to feed them food, comes. Kids generally don’t like things at the first go. Or their lack of appetite might be a problem in making them eat food.
