My 8 month old boy is completely uninterested in eating solids. He turns his head away when I try to spoon feed and if I persist he just cries. He's picks up finger food and bangs it on the table then pushes it off the table on to the floor. He just won't eat! I don't know what to do. We started when he was about 5 1/2 months and had a little bit of success but for the last month or so it's just been getting worse and every meal time I end up so frustrated and feeling like a failure.
Otherwise, he is such a happy little boy. He is crawling (since 6 months), pulling himself up and cruising along couches, benches and anything else he can find!
I've tried my own puréed fruit and vegies and meat and packet sachets too. No difference.
He breastfeeds 4 hourly during the day and once (sometimes twice) overnight.
Does anyone have any advice? I am feeling at such a loss.
