My baby has completely refused to eat solids. Im so frustrated. All she wants to do is play! What is happening. I'm a first time mum and I don't know what to do

Actually, try baby cereals like rice or oats. Gerber has them. Try fruits and light veggies that are puree. She may not be ready to try solids just yet as she is learning to eat foods. Solids with an infant is not a good idea. You need to start slowly and work your way to solids. Solids present a choking hazard to an infant if not in a puree form. Babies do not know how to chew foods as yet.

Solids before one are just for fun so it's really not a big deal if he isn't that interested in eating solids yet. Just keep trying but try not to let it stress you since formula or breastmilk should be his primary source of nutrition right now.
