  • Have you tried pureeing your own baby food from real fruit and vegetables instead of buying the jarred stuff?

  • There is no reason that a 5 month old needs to eat solid food yet ~ Let her enjoy her bottles and try agian in another month or so!

  • if you ever get a little babyfood on your finger or something and taste it *shudders* it is VILE!! I made my sons babyfood. it is REALLY easy! he didnt eat real well at first either, but, when i started making his food, he went to TOWN. if you want some recipes, shoot me a pm

  • if she has liked it in the past, dont worry too much about if she is refusing it. afterall, solids before a year is only for practice! if she has recently reached a milestone she might have more interest in that then staying still in a highchair, or maybe she is bored with what you're offering her! like the pp's have written, maybe try making your own food! it is healthier and can be fun once she has tasted the foods on a single basis then combine them for more flavors in one meal! are you letting her feed herself? my son only lets me feed him on occasion. he prefers using his hands to feed himself and I've learned to just let him be messy and enjoy his meal. there's a great homemade babyfood group on here
