My daughter just turned 6 months n dose not have a big interst in babyfood...I've been trying since she was 4 months with rice cereal but she keeps gagging n will spit the food out....since she turned 6 months I've tried veggies n fruit still no success...samething gaging n spitting up....I feel she getting more hungry as she nurses more n maybe not feeling full.grabbing n reaching for our stuff at the I kinda stopped given her baby food bc I'm wasting it....should I try making my own baby food for her or not....I've never done it before. She is very healthy n still gains weight from her doc visit...I've read on the internet that some baby completely skipped eatting baby food.... Had anybody had this happen to have any tips to get my daughter interested more in eatting?

I wouldn't push it. Breastmilk or formula is to be the main source of nutrition right now. Google "baby led solids" and see if that would be something you'd be interested in trying. Basically, you skip the cereal and purees. I found this by accident when my twin boys weren't interested in purees.
