Anyone else having problems getting their 9-10 month old to eat? Mine breast feeds a lot, but eats very little solid food. He still has good weight on him, but I'm worried that soon breast milk will no longer be enough to maintain a healthy weight.

As long as you are nursing him on demand that is all he really needs for the first year. I know several kids that are just fine (some are actually quite large) that were exclusively breastfed for the first year and then slowly introduced to solids over the next 6 months or so.

If yo really want him to be eating solids just keep trying things. Make sure to try them over and over to make sure he doesn't like them and that it isn't just a texture thing. Mine hated baby foods and only ate chopped up table foods until about a month or so ago. She still prefers to nurse, but if we are eating she wants to be too! Good luck.
