Ever since my 7 1/2 month old daughter started eating her solids, there wasn't a day I didn't fight with her. Sure I understand some foods she didn't like. She will put up a HUGE tantrum after eating a single spoon of it. I see other babies her age eating a whole jar of their solids in the am, afternoon and evening. I am happy if I can get her to finish a single jar in one day. I feel horrible about giving up and just giving her formula. I know its not enough for her, because she starts to complain and STILL refuses to eat her solids. She will only eat her yogurt melts and wheel puffs. I know thats not a very nutritious meal for her. I am at my last straw. I tried giving her all sorts of different kinds of mixes of fruits and veggies. She spits it out and starts screaming and crying with tears. Also, while feeding her she will not sit straight, she constantly looking around and leaning over her seat as if she is extremely bored and looking for something to do, which makes it even harder for me to get her attention to eat. Does anyone else have this problem? Is this normal? I know that if she doesn't wanna eat something, it doesn't necessarily mean she doesn't need it for her nutrition. Any advice??
