: 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.

~=~=~=~=: I'll tell you what my doctor told me. As long as they are eating something. There is really nothing to worry about, just continue to try introducing new foods and don't become discouraged when they refuse them. And on another visit "she will eat when she is hungry". ~~GOOD LUCK~~
