Doesn't want solids!!! HELP!

Jillian - posted on 09/04/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




My daughter was born at 26 weeks. She is now 9 months old (6 corrected) and up to this point has had no major issues. (THANK GOD) About 2 months ago I started giving her solids and she would "EAT" them but lately she cries and spits them out and refuses to eat any. The only solids she'll eat are bananas. I made her pureed butternut squash, carrots and sweet potato but she won't eat any of it even if I mix it in with the bananas. I'm nervous because I don't want her to get all of her nutrition from the formula.

Any advice?

Breast milk or formula is supposed to be the main part of their diet under a year. Her adjusted age is only 6 months and that's actually the minimum recommendation for STARTING foods.

She is totally fine to just have formula right now. Give it a few weeks and try offering her bits every now and then, but don't worry if she doesn't eat them for a while..... even another 3 or more months.
