My 9 month old daughter refuses to eat baby food. She is a breast fed baby. I have a Baby Brezza and have tried different fruits and vegetables, I have also tried rice cereal and yogurt. The only food that she has seemed to eat on a consistent basis is rice puffs. I thought that maybe she didn't have any interest in solid food unti this evening, she lunged at my mothers plate and shoved a French fry in her mouth. I quickly grabbed it from her, but she kept going back for more. My mother thinks that she should have a mushed up pancake tomorrow. Any ideas as to what I should try? Should I be trying first foods or skipping to foods suggested for a 9 month old?

My daughter wouldn't eat solids until she was about 9 months, and then, she was always wanting what was on my plate and wanted to feed herself. So I just went with that.

If she's 9 months old she can just eat what you eat. I've never fed baby food to either of my kids. Always seemed easier to just cut up some of mine.
