Hi. My daughter is almost 5 months old. She has been on solids for one month now, as she dramatically reduced her bottle intake from 180ml/bottle to 60-90ml/bottle, and would refuse to drink anymore. (So she lost weight). I have been told to offer solids after each bottle, which I do, usually baby rice cereal and pureed fruit for b/fast, yoghurt for m/tea, vegies and pureed fruit for lunch, custard a/tea then chicken/vegies and pureed fruit/custard for dinner. She has been feeding well most days with this, and for b/fast, lunch & dinner has either full jar of main food/2 tbsp rice cereal. Since Saturday just gone (9/12) she has been refusing her solids, sometimes only having 2 baby spoonfuls, without increasing her formula intake. She simply will not open her mouth. We have tried distraction techniques, which only work for about ½ the feed. I have tried giving her a spoon of her own to hold, and 'shove' my spoonful in when she opens her mouth to chew on her spoon, but this is a very long and frustrating process. My husband has tried feeding her, as well as my mum, but it makes no difference, she still won't open her lips!!! What can I do???
