  • How old is she? If she's over a year old, then get rid of the bottle, she doesn't need it and put her on foods, real foods taste better than baby foods

  • And if she's under 9 months, she might not be ready for solids yet. My son wasn't. (I know most kids are by 6 months, a few even want solids at 4 months, but every baby is different).

  • I kicked the bottle out of the house and we went to cups and solids when the doctor said they were ready (i have 4 rugrats-not multiples). It worked with all of them. Just make sure to not go with the sweet stuff first.

  • my dd just wanted a bottle till she was like a year old, if shes older then a year get ride of the bottle and get a soft sippy cup to start with. you might have to just keep trying she wont starve to death if your providing food hungry kids eat.

  • She eats some times and other times she does not want to look at food, we do give her real food!
