My daughter had been eating baby food regularly since about 6 months and has since then got her first tooth at about 7.5 - 8 months and since that happened has started waking up at 5 am to bf goes to bed right after fed until 7am (bed time 8-8:30pm). She has started gagging on all of her baby food that she once would eat. I also wanted her to increase her eating to 3X a day to begin the weaning from BF naturally even though I know babies primarily need the boobie or formula until a year old. I have since started giving her 4 oz of formula to start her to wean but she still BF a lot throughout the day, snacking lots (my feeling is for comfort due to her teething). My concern is that she will be a picky eater due to not eating her baby food. I don't have a dr. apt until her 9 month checkup. The Dr. office had suggested she get less milk, even when my daughter is hungry she will gag on the baby food and I get frustrated, give up and BF her and then she is happy. My Grandmother, wise as she is had suggested I put a bit of baby food on my plate while I eat and this has worked but Mackenzie is still not eating the quantity she used to and won't eat in her highchair like she used to. Why the change?
