My boy will be 8 months in just a few days and a little over a week ago he started crawling. The week before that he stopped wanting to eat any food, other than sweet potatoes and only wants his sippy cup now. I don't know how to get him to eat his food at all. In order to make sure he is getting enough to eat I feed him his bottle at snack time. I've cut that back to only 4 oz to make sure he is hungry for meal time but still doesn't want to eat. Infact as soon as I put him in his highchair he gets fussy. I read many columns on babies and solids etc and I've tried letting him feed himself but he gets frustrated because he can't quite get the food in his mouth yet. Not sure how to get him to eat solids again.
