Have you taken her to her Doctor to let them know and see what they suggest? I know it's hard to get babies to eat, but try the best you can to get her to eat her baby food. I have a 3 and a half year old. I honestly can't remember when I started on his baby food. I know he was 4 months when I began to feed him 'Gerber cereal for baby', they have different kinds. I think I used the rice one on him, can't remember, but they have a Oatmeal kind. Try giving your daughter the Gerber cereal Oatmeal single grain. On the top right hand corner of every box they have pictures for you to see if it's the right stage for your baby, like: 'supported sitter' 'crawler', etc. As well as the baby food jars. And of course continue with her formula or Breast milk (whichever she is taking).
Of course if you can, you can always puree your own baby food. Blend it as good as you can. Sorry, hoped I helped some. I would still take her to her Doctor to see what they say.

Hi Soniya!

Is the doctor concerned about your daughter's weight. I know that in the US they look to see if the child is growing along the same weight curve that they were on the first few months of life. My son only weighed about 8.5kg when he was a year old. He is 21 months old now and weighs 10.5kg. He is healthy and very active and eats well, so the doctor said she is not concerned about anything. Just make sure that the food she does eat is healthy. I breastfed him until he was 9 months and started him on solids at 6 months. He would not eat the cereal...and it bound him up...so my doc said just to skip it and start on fruits and veggies. She said to do the orange colors first and then green for the veggies and for the fruits light colors like bananas first and then the fruits with colors second, like peaches and mangoes. Don't stress out...and don't let other people stress you out about it either. My Mother in Law is constantly trying to cram food down my kids throat. :)
