My son is 71/2mo old. I was told my his pediatrician not to start jar food till he turned 6mo. I thought I was being a good mom by breast feeding my child, he never took to the bottle or a pacifier, he just didn't want anything to do with any of those things. I am now having trouble getting him to eat or even drink any water. Any suggestions??Answer Question

MOST babies are developmentally ready for solids somewhere between 6 and 8 months. Some babies thrive on breastmilk alone until 12 months or later as long as your baby is continuing to gain weight and grow as he should, your milk is meeting his needs well.
Babies who are ready for solids can usually feed themselves. Mothers often report that they knew their babies were ready when they picked up food from a plate, chewed it, swallowed it, and wanted more.
Listen to your baby! Babies with a tendency to allergies may refuse solids until later in their first year. As long as they are growing well and are happy and healthy, there is no need for concern.
