My daughter is 6 mo and 3 weeks old and does not want to eat. I'm so shocked because my son loved eating right away. I've tried giving her cereal mixed with breast milk and she tried to suck it off the spoon. She did not open her mouth. She half pushes it out with her tongue. A few days later I tried pureed sweet potato and the same result.
She cannot sit well without flopping over to the side or folding in half( she is fascinated by her tootsies!). And it seems her sucking is still all she knows. She was nine days past due and I'm so shocked she seems not ready at all?!
I'm worried about the whole iron thing. Should I still try every night 'till she gets the hang of it, or should I quit all together and wait a few weeks more? Should I be worried that she seems developmentally behind? When will she be ready? How long do I wait until taking her to her doctor?
