    Hello ladies. Ava is 8 months old and from 6-7.5 months she loved food. We did a mix of purees and fingerfoods. In the last two weeks she has absolutely refused to eat food. I have tried all different kinds and textures. Puree, solid ect. She will eat blueberrries and some toast but thats it and that is not enough. Im worried. She hasnt dropped any bottle feeds so that makes me feel a little better but shouldn't she be dropping some formula feeds and uping her real food intake at 8 months?

    Should I be concered?

    She is still growing great and is 19 lb 2 oz at 8 months old.

    Could well be teething, and honestly at 8 months I really wouldn't worry about her only eating toast and blueberries for bit, I dont think you can tell what is enough or not for your baby, only they know. And she is growing well and drinking milk, I'm sure it is a phase / teething and will be over soon.
