my baby doesnt eat a lot...worried!!

0 DD is 8.5 months and eats about a tbsp of food or a couple bites twice a day. She is not interested in solids. She use to eat good when she was 6 months. Is this normal or should I be worried? I hear of babies eating jars of baby food 3 times a day at her age so it makes me wonder. Thanks in advance :)

Hey Cherry, at this time I don't think you should b to worried. Remember DD is teething n gums are hurting like hell. I had the same prob, what I did I gave food as usual, but did not force my bby to eat. I placed sum plain cereal in her bottle so I was sure that her tummy was full.
My son is 4 now and is a lazy eater as well. So I give him what he asks for, even if it means that I cook something just for him.
Hope this helps
