My 7 month old won't eat any solid foods. He stopped about 1 1/2 months ago. Now when I try to feed him he closes his mouth and starts spitting and blowing raspberries. He's already on the small side so this concerns me. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get him to eat again?

I didn't even start my kid on solid food until she was 8 months old. Food before one is just for fun. Be patient, and don't force it.

Time and patience. Don't force him. Let him eat when he is ready. His breast milk or formula has all the calories and nutrients he NEEDS at this stage. Take it slow and maybe start offering him some simple finger foods that he can feed himself when he is ready.
