My daughter is 6 1/2 months and doesnt eat alot of baby food. I can get her to eat it for every meal for like 2 days and then she refuses to eat it. Can anyone give me some advice on how to get her to eat more of it???

She really doesn't like anything besides green beans and sweet potatoes. I feed her before the bottle. Some days she will get it and some days she wont. But i'll try everyones advice. Thank you!

i feed my son cereal once a day and food once a day at different feedings... i feed him first then nurse him... if you are nursing(or bottle feeding) beforehand try switching it, and also like the other ladies said try backing off a little and starting out slow, do one meal a day and then work your way up slowly! As always, as long as she is a good weight then really it doesnt matter how much she eats!!!

Are you feeding her to much? Or are you bottle/breast feeding right before you are trying to feed? Like someone else said, start out slow. One meal a day at first is all they need. Make that meal 1 TBSP. Then work your way there. Don't rush the process. And it could very well be something they don't like. Good Luck!

i would start out slow so she can adjust, for instance start with one feeding a day with a solid for a few days, then go to two feedings, etc. she might be feeling rushed if you are just jumping right in.
