Hey everyone, all of you LLL forum posters have been invaluable to me :, and now I need help once again. My DD is 7 months old and at her night feeding with DH she eats up to 2 tablespoons (or one of those 2.5 oz containers) of food for him. However, last week we started to introduce a second meal during the day. She will eat at MOST 2 TEAspoons of food for me. This is also true if I do the feeding at night. I know the reason she won't solids with me is because she prefers milk. She is underweight (though not malnourished), and solids have actually helped her gain weight in the past month (for the first time in 3 months she gained a full pound in one month). I have a very abundant supply, so I have to wait at least an hour after feeding her before I can offer her solids because she gets completely full at a feeding session so that even if DH fed her right after she nursed, he might get one or two bites before she adamantly refuses food. Let me be very clear: Solids have NOT replaced any nursing sessions for her at all!
So, that all said, what can I do to get her to eat solids for me?
