My almost 7 month old just refuses to eat solid foods. She loves to play with the spoon but if it has food on it she won't let it near her mouth! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my little girl to eat solid foods?

Let her fed herself. Instead of mashing the vegies or pureeing meat leave them in hand size pieces for her and she can do it. A lot of kids just want the independence, maybe even offer it to her on an infants fork. My daughter has been feeding herself this way since 7 months.
