  • I work at a daycare and by that age most of the babies get a veggie for lunch. But if she is not acting hungry than I guess it is just up to you if you want her to have it or not. The way I always see it done is cereal for breakfast, veggie for lunch, fruit for snack, and veggie for dinner. But its really just up to you.

  • she should, but its really up to you. my son at 6 months was eating solids! so i think it depends on your baby and you. :D

  • It all depends on what you and your baby want. My son was on finger food and a cup at 10 months. DD is 11 months and still using a bottle some and has a harder time with finger food. Every baby develops differently. If she not hungry no need to push it. formula is supposed to be the main sorce of nutrition for the first year. The rest is just practice.
