How old is she? If she is under year old she doesn't need anything other that her formula or breast milk, so I would just hold off for a while. She may be mre ready in a few weeks, or a couple months depending on her age.

You can't make a baby eat, and you dont need to. She will eat food when she is ready

They don't need solids for awhile. You can continue to offer, but never force her. My DD refused solids for months before she changed her mind.

Even if they make it to 12months and still are only eating liquid - it's okay!

Re: baby wont eat

I agree with everyone else. Keep offering, but don't stress. You cannot make her eat and you don't want to pick that battle. (Because she will win.) How old is she?

Re: baby wont eat

I have the same problem, but in addition to not being into solids baby also refuses bottles. So I'm nursing exclusively - I dont mind that much BUT she wont sleep more than 2 hours in a row and I'm exhausted. Has anyone else gone through this? Any tips?

My baby is almost 9 months old.
