Re: Teething 9 month old doesn't want to eat anything
No need to worry. Until a year, a baby who is breastfed on demand is capable of getting all her nutritional needs met by breastmilk alone. So until the first birthday, think of solids as something you offer only because they are fun (new tastes, new textures) and because baby can practice new motor skills when playing with them and getting them into her mouth. So if she eats some- great! And if she just tastes them and spits them back out- great! At least she tried. And if she won't even taste the solids and prefers to squish them with her hands or feed them to the dog or stuff them down a crack in her highchair- still great, because she had a fun learning experience.
After the first birthday, your baby may still prefer the breast and get most of her nutrition from your milk, but solids will slowly start to make up an important component of her diet. A lot of breastfed babies remain mostly breastfed until some point in the second year- for example, my girls didn't eat more than a teaspoon or two of solid food until around 14-15 months.
