My son won't eat I've been trying for two months

My 7month old baby refuses to eat food every time I try to give him food he closes his mouth really tight or starts to cry, what can I do to get him to eat?

Give him time. Breast milk or formula has all the calories and nutrients his body needs for growth and health under a year. Food is just for fun and practice. If you have only tried to feed him he 'might' be interested in feeding himself some finger foods... but don't worry if he doesn't eat yet and don't push him... I have two that started solids early and loved every minute of it and one that, while he did take his first bite at 6 months, wasn't eating on a daily basis til close to a year.... and still had some breast milk only days til 18 months. All 3 are perfectly healthy (youngest is 7 years old).
