I have a 7 1/2 year old, a 4 year old, and a 10 month old, all three where started on solids at between 3 1/2 and 4 months. I have found kids will eat if there hungry, my son (the 7 1/2 yr old) has always stopped eating when he doesn't feel good (teething, cold etc.), my 4 yr old girl has always gone through stages where she can't stop eating all day for several days and then all the sudden she stops eating and will only eat a smal meal once a day, I asked the doc about it once he said thats fine. If she is still bright eyed and active then I wouldn't worry, just make sure she is getting her bottle/nursing, thats #1. Hope it helps. FYI, I find the Hylands teething tablets help if it is teething.

her breast milk and formula are the most important at this point! she really doesnt need food until after a year old. most of her nutrients come from her milk. my pediatrician said to only give solids once or twice a day AFTER our son had milk. so if she doesnt want to eat it, dont force it. just give her milk. she will be fine. and another GREAT piece of advice dealing with kids and eating is "when they are hungry...they will eat!" its VERY true. i found it true from birth up until my oldest sons age, he will be 3 in april. sometimes they just arent hungry :)
