My daughter is almost 6 month she won't take solid food at all, i tried every recipe with different flavors but she won't take it, i started fed her solid since she was 4 1/2 month and she was enjoyed it. Recently she started being unhappy , she doesn't cry but she seem unhappy , she doesn't play as she use to , i took her to the doctor and he said there is nothing wrong with her, this worries me alot and since she keep losing weight .

No decent doctor is not going to be concerned with a 6 month old who is losing weight. At 6 months they don't really 'need' solids... just breast milk or formula. How much of either of those is she getting each day?



If she is losing weight and your doctor isn't concerned... get a second opinion. Now.



Good luck!!

Thank u Dove and Amy for your advice .........for now aim concentrating on giving my baby more breast milk than solids....... and she seem happy again but I'm not sure on weight gain because her next appointment to the doctor is 21st of December.....whatever the results i will surely let you guys know.

To add to Doves point there is no solid that you will offer that has more calories then breastmilk or formula. So if your daughter is losing weight add more formula or breastmilk feedings and cut out the solids for awhile.
