My girl is 9 months old, she currently has milk formula through the day, she will also have melty sticks although tries to put it all in her mouth. We try to give her pureed food although she hardly ever seems interested and just turns her head away.
We have recently tried her on things like scrambled egg and other foods that are a little more solid like sweet potato mash etc
Similar with these foods she will turn her head away.
The GP did say a while ago they thought she had silent reflux which she is on ranitidine and baby gavison for but we was thinking recently that she may be getting a little better with that but not 100%
She has recently had a weight check and they said she was exactly where she should be for her weight and height etc so she’s not losing any weight which is good.
We have recently found that sometimes she will take the odd bit off food if you give it her from our hand and not her baby spoon.
She has also just started nursery which might be good for her watching the other babies.
Has anyone got any other advice though to get her to try and eat more?
I second not using the spoon. Just offer some cut up pieces on her highchair tray and don’t stress it if she doesn’t take to it anytime soon. My friend’s DS ignored all solids until he was 13 months old. As long as she’s a healthy weight why worry?
My dd wasn't hugely keen on food until. I stopped breastfeeding just after she turned 1. Mine was happier being spoon fed but it might be worth reading up on babyled weaning as your dd may prefer that. Do a first aid course if nervous about choking.
Just to offer some empathy we're in a similar position with DS (also 9 months). He will now try a fair few solid foods- after literally months of offering but the total amount he eats is very, very small in comparison to his peers. We're loosely following BLW and so I'm not too concerned, however I plan to stop expressing when he's a year a I go back to work and can't really express given the job I do so he'll have to start eating a bit more by then really! Hope your DD starts to take a shine to food soon
