  • Maybe she's just not ready yet. Try again in a few weeks.

  • Could be because a baby needs nothing but breast milk or formula until they are a year old. I did a ton of research on solids, and talk to several pedi's. They all agreed, delaying solids until at LEAST 9 months, is better for the baby! Do some research on it!

  • she has had a large variety of things from cereals to fruits and veggies. She drinks formula and is thriving with it being her only source of nutrition. Our pediatrician has been pushing me to give her solids since she was four months old and i keep thinking that her stomach isnt ready for them so it is nice to hear the advice. thanks so much :)

  • Cereal is difficult to digest, you might try eliminating that. Just formula isn't enough after 6 mo. A breastfed baby can go longer than 6 mo but that's because it is the perfect food. Cow's milk is the perfect food for cows and formula is made from cow's milk. Try things like being careful about position after eating. Your baby may need meds. Reflux burns as it comes up.
