    Are you interested in trying BLW?

    My DD barely opens her mouth when we are feeding her purees, but she's happy to munch down on a piece of banana or toast.

    Maybe talk to your MCHN if you're worried. Maybe she's not ready? Is she showing other signs?

    2 tips for you: Do NOT push food.. Give her a break, you do not want her to end up with food aversion.
    Secondly.. Most people are only just starting their kids on solids at this age... Chill... Chill out and don't stress about it! When you're stressing about it you'll cause her problems with eating.

    No need to be worried, as pp have said she may not be ready! Just keep
    Offering ( not pushing ) and when she is ready she will take it, try putting some thick cut strips of cucumber on her tray, they are great to get her used to picking up/holding and gumming food, plus sit her with you at the dinner table for family meals and definitely look into BLW !
