  • She doesn't need solids. You can try them if you want. Do you feed her on demand? If that's all she's eating that may be all she actually wants to eat.

  • She is 7 months she should be on baby food.

  • You can feed her if you want to. Don't worry about the drinking. As long as she's gaining weight. You'll find one day she will eat more or less than the next. But overall she'll get enough.

  • If that is all she wants then she is probably just fine... 25-30 oz/day is about average. She can start solids whenever you think she is ready... she doesn't need any right now if you don't want to start them... before a year they are just for practice, they shouldn't replace milk intake.

  • The best thing you can talk with the babies doctor. She/he will give you a good guideline to go by. Here is a couple websites you can read.... ~

  • I would talk to your pediatrician. My daughter was the same way. On good days she would have 4-5 bottles at 5 ounces. There is nothing wrong with her, she just wasn't hungry. She gave up formula and bottle all together by the time she was 9 months. I think it is catching up to her because now she eats like a horse!
