have you tried giving her any kind of soft finger foods (easy to mush or anything?) something she can finger and play with a little bit? babies dont NEED solids its just a learning experience and practice for when they start neeeeeding food... some drs say its okay to breastfeed or bottle feed for the first year without solids... if you are to concerned ask your ped. at the next visit or make an extra phone call.. it never hurts to ask and chances are you arent the first one to ask the same question. dont be afraid to get your little girl the help that she may need!

Just keep attempting the solids! She'll take them eventually:o) As for the sitting, can she sit assisted? My daughter was closer to 7-7.5 months before she could sit well alone. She is now 9 months and she is just getting the hang of "real" crawling instead of always doing the army crawl. She has also just started to pull herself up to a stand, but only in her crib (well unless you count holding our hands and pulling herself up). Every child is different and she will get there soon enough:o) If your really worried about it give your doctor a call. Good luck:o)

With the siting i used the jolly jumper propped it down so she was in the siting position that way it supports her as well as gives her moment to get her own balance hop it helped

mine did the same i put blended up stuff ( vegies , fruit) thick in her bottle cut the teats so it came out for about 2 weeks so she got used to the texture of it and that helped a lot now she cant get enough hope i helped you

My Daughter is 8 months and is now a good sitter she stills fall tho when she gets excited! And She didn't want any cereal or purees until 7 months and still to this day she wont eat cereal. My dr said its like a light bulb it will come one when she is ready and she told me some babies dont eat cereal or baby food till 8 months it all depends on her! Good Luck!
