My girl is 8.5 months old. We have breastfed since day 1 and never had formula. She drinks pumped milk out of a bottle fine at the sitter. We started solids at 6 months. Basic stuff, apples, bananas, carrots, etc. She didn't love anything and I was usually fighting her to eat. This has gone on for months and she still will not eat solids. You have to spend 10 minutes fighting her to get 1/2 jar gone. It isn't worth it and most of the time she clinches her jaw and turns her head. I have tried every kind of food under the sun.
She also will not put things in her mouth at all, besides her hands occasionally. I have given her bite sized pieces of food and she won't put them in her mouth. When I put them in there for her she gags continuously and tried to spit it out.
She has never taken a paci and gags with those also, but does her bottle just fine. I am at a loss for what to do. I know food before 1 is just for fun but I'm beginnging to think she's never going to eat solids. I have a hard time keeping up with her while she's at the sitters as it is. She will eat 6oz of BM every 3 hours if we let her.
