does your bub have them everyday??Its been a month now since i've started DD on solids (shes 6m now) but somedays (like today ) she just flat out refuses to have solids (even if its her favourite), and just wants milk. she'll push every mouthful out. Shes ok otherwise, not sick or anything. but i than get worried that she hasnt had solids all day (sometimes 2 days in a row).
usually she has like a tablepoon full at a time, rarely 2 tablespoons .
Does it matter? sorry if sounds like a dum question...

I always followed the "food is for fun" rule between 6 & 12 months. Keep on offering it, some days they take it others they don't, offer finger foods as much as possible too.
6 months is still very young and milk still needs to be her main source of nutrition.
I always found Cruskits a good early ginger food, cut length ways so they can get their little hand around it, they get sticky and soggy very quickly!
Before you know it she'll be eating so much you'll be wondering where she puts it all!!

At first, the only food she had was what she took from my plate. When it was more regular, I started to give her a bowl or plate of her own in her highchair while I ate. So at first it was irregular, not everyday, just when she took it.

Hi OP, my DD got established on solids quite quickly, but had a few days afterward when she got sick that she refused all solids and only wanted booby. Once she got better it was back to the solid food again. As PP said before 12 months its still a learning thing

another 'food for fun' family here. DD has always had some of our meal, and if she eats it, great, if not, its no big deal

DD2 is 6 months and we started solids when she was 5 months. She does have some solids everyday since she started but a few weeks ago she got a cold and wasn't interested so I just didn't give her any for a few days. No biggie, at this age they're just tasting food anyway.

My ds also found it hard to adjust - and he has proven to be a very picky eater. I've started feeding him when we eat so he can see we are all doing it to, and lots of things he can hold himself as he is very independent. He is 14 months old and I still think he is not eating enough but he is gaining wait, healthy and sleeps through the night so ped says not to worry. It sounds like your doing all the right things. Just keep it up xoxo
