Hi I'm new on here and I am having a hard time getting my almost 9 month old to eat! She's been exclusively breastfed since birth and when I introduced solids like rice cereal and baby food she did great! For two months that is. At 8 months she stopped taking baby food completely. I was distraught because I kept getting told that she needs to be on a healthy diet! Well I did everything I could think of. I bought all organic veggies and fruits and tried to purée them. That didnt work so I cut them up into very small bites and she ate it all! Now a month later she refuses to eat anything! She still breastfeeds but will not accept solids! The only thing she will take is bananas and those gerber puffs. I feel like I'm failing somewhere because she no longer eats!I should mention she has her bottom teeth and I think is in the process of cutting her top two teeth. Maybe it's just teething or am I doing something wrong? I'm a first time mom and I have no idea what to do!
