Hi everyone, I wonder if anyone has any advice for me, I'm at a loss at to what to do! Firstly my DD is 8 1/2 months old, and is FF, she has about 4/5 bottles a day. We started Purree feeding at 6 months, but after a few days of her persing her lips shut, and shaking her head, then tears and full on crying we heard about Baby Led Weaning which seemed alot baby friendlier so we decided to give that a go. However, this has been met with problems too, at the beginning she wasn't able to eat well, everything would be chewed and spat out, which I put down to the fact the was learning something new. But 2 1/2 months on, she STILL isn't eating, she will play, but won't eat. For dinner I will do something like carrot sticks, and cheese sticks. It's a good day if she managed 1/4 of a carrot and 1/2 a stick of cheese. She just simply isn't interested. She just plays with it until she gets board, then wants out. I am extremely positive at meal times, I don't get stressed, I eat with her, I praise her when she is being really good, and when she is playing with it, I bring her attention back to her dinner, but nothing works. She also isn't at all interested in other people's food. If I am eating she doesn't have any urge to share, there just isn't any interest. Anyway, so we have recently been trying to feed her with a spoon, but it just ends up with DD is tears, really upset, pulling away from us, turning from the spoon, and just generally really stressed out. I'm not really sure what to do next, she doesn't feed herself and she doesn't want to be fed Also, we got her weighed 2 days a go, she is 16lb 13 in the 2 months of weaning she has put on just 11 pounds. In every other way she is very healthy, she is very sociable, loves other babies, talks, babbles smiles. Physical development us fine, she was sitting up at 4 1/2 months, crawling 6 months 1 week, and has been standing up for about 2 weeks and can walk using a walker. So about from food she is doing really well, can anyone advise me on how to get her to eat, because I have no idea!
