We've been trying since she was 6 mos but still little progress has been made. She will sometimes eat mashed bananas and occasionally will eat soft stalks of broccoli. But, she won't eat ANYTHING else. In fact, she won't even put the food to her mouth most of the time. We've tried different times of the day, we've tried offering her food off of our plate, we've tried mushy and soft finger foods. She doesn't seem to understand how to gum her food; typically, IF she puts it to her mouth, she will chomp on it with her four front teeth if it's soft finger food. 'm starting to think she will never eat solids! How "normal" is this, and is there anything else I can try?
I should add that we give her probiotics in the form of a watery paste via an oral syringe. She takes that like a pro, often holding the syringe herself and moving it to her mouth. The acidophilus is flavorless.
