OP: I have an almost 9 month old who has very little interest in solids. He has just in the last week started having more interest, but even then doesn't eat much. I never gave him baby food, and have given him little bits of table food since 7 months. I'm in no hurry to rush to give 3 meals a day...he doesn't even eat 1! If he displays interest in something I'm eating (as long as he can have it), I give him a little piece to taste. He either likes it or spits it up. Is there a history of allergies in your family? Just give your LO as much as she's interested in. Like PP's said, solids before 1 are really more for fun than nutrition!
