My daughter is almost 5 months old and we are trying to get her to start eating jars of baby food atleast once a day. But she doesnt seem to like it at all. We've tried stage one bananas, and applesauce. I bought carrots,potatoes, and chicken ones to but I dont want to open them yet if shes not gonna eat them. Do you think it still might be a little to early to start her on solids?

I say stop and try again in a few weeks. When they are ready they gulp it down and beg for more! From When should my baby start solids?
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.

Food is ALWAYS for nutrition. It's the baby food companies that started the myth that nutrition isn't important. I've told the people that keep spredding this on cm and they don't seem to care about infant nutrition. Every food you give your baby should be for nutrition, they don' need "experience".
Take a fork and mash banana or sweet potato and let the baby feed itself. If the baby can't do that, then the baby probably isn't developmentally ready for solids. For more on starting solids, go to.
