: : Since my daughter turned 7 mos she has a very select palate and will only drink her formula- and now shes older will eat toast, cheerios, and watermelon. on occasions few and far between she will eat cheese and some other foods but only a few bites and it has to be finger food she can pick up and feed herself but nothing even close to a meal. She will however eat her pablum in a.m and p.m just before bed but thats it. Does anyone have any advice or has been through this i feel like i'm doing something wrongbut i have tried everything.Most of the time i can't even get the food close to her mouth to try.

: Let her feed her self, she is almost one let her go for it its not going to hurt. She should be eating table food now you just got to indurduce it to her.
She has been feeding herself since she was 8 mos old and weve given table foods since she was 7 mos thats not the problem the problem is she only eats a couple of foods and thay are not nutrient rich.
