I just recently started giving my six month old son baby food. The first two weeks he seemed to like it/ be interersted. Now he doesnt seem to want it at all. He is EBF and doesnt seem to be hungry. I dont think I should force the baby food but will keep trying. Do you think he is getting enough to eat from breastfeeding?

Are you giving real foods - banana, sweet potato, or avacado - and letting your baby feed himself?
Nursing isn't plenty, that's why babies need to start solids. It's not for experimenting or for fun or other such nonsense. Those kinds of myths were started by a baby food company and continue to be spread by mothers that don't understand infant nutrition. Every food you give your baby should be nutritious.
http://www.kellymom.com/ is a good breastfeeding website that has starting solids info. Babies can't thrive on breastmilk alone for 12 mo.
