    Default Feeding a small 7.5month old solids

    My bub is 7.5months old & is lactose intolerant & is barely eating solids she has 3x 240ml bottles a day & that is enough to for her she only weighs 6.5-7.5 kilos now. I'm stressing out that she is not eating solids like kids her age. In trying her on toast solders but she is managing to pull it sort into small piece. She has no teeth yet.

    My DD2 didn't really eat any solids until after she was 1. She was cows milk protein intolerant and had terrible reflux, and would projectile vomit every single thing I put in her mouth. She was under 8kgs at 12 months old, so very little too.
    I found that she couldn't handle any texture, so I blended everything until it was silky smooth. She is 3 now and still gags on some foods. My DD was happiest eating rafferty fruit pouches and blended veggies.

If she is only the size of a 6 month old, it makes sense that she would have the eating habits of a 6 month old.

    What solids have you tried her on? Will she eat mashed avocado (high in good fats), you can mix it with fruit purée to make it tasty. Protein will also help her put on weight. If you google annabel karmel recipes she has great recipe ideas for each age.
    We have tried her on kids weetbix, lactose free yogurt, potato & mix of veggies steamed and blended & after the veggies she has vomited up heaps but is fine after weetbix or yogurt.
    Thank you so much for replying I'm just a stressing mum ATM lol being my second I thought I would be better at it but not at all lol.
