It depends on what you think is causing it, and if their becoming malnourished or loosing weight because of it. Is he/she not wanting to eat in general, or is it just the baby food? My 6 1/2 mo old has acid reflux that got worse when she started teething a few weeks ago, and started refusing her bottles. If he/she is teething, that could very well be the culprit. If it starts to become a health concern, make sure to visit your doctor to rule out any serious problems, and make sure he/she isnt becoming dehydrated, malnourished, or loosing weight. Good luck.

With my first one I went nuts when he wouldn't eat...but honestly, he probably just doesn't want to eat. Is he acting ok or is he lethargic and sleeping a lot? Look for signs that something isn't "right"...only YOU know your baby. Chances are he's fine and you should get ready for that growth spurt he's saving up for...that usually follows when mine go through this.

Hope this helped
