my baby was doing great slowly transitioning to solids. i breastfed almost exclusively till 6 months when we started trying new soft foods. she was doing great and was eating blackbeans, whole blueberries, tomatoes, bread, small pastas, corn, strawberries, etc,. at 9 1/2 months she had 5 teeth and (two weeks ago) i started trying to feed her actual meals of food, along with breastfeeding. but now - all of a sudden - she refuses to eat! she'll eat small, buttered pieces of toast, or cheese, but refuses the things that used to be her favorites. she pushes everything out with her tongue like shes an infant and rubs her face and throws the food on the ground.
i'm getting so frustrated!! i was ready to slowly wean her and hoping the solids would get her to sleep more through the night. she was nursing less, sleeping more. but now i'm not producing as much milk and she refuses food.
i want to just refuse to nurse until bedtime and figure if she's hungry enough, she'll eat. but i dont know if thats too harsh. i usually was completely in favor of following her lead, but shes refusing foods that i know she CAN EAT and DID LIKE so its so frustrating.
any advice or experience??????? please?
