Feeding

I have been having problems feeding my daughter. She is 10 months old and has been eating baby food for 5 months now. In the past month or so, she hasnt really been eating. I try not to give her a bottle unless she wont stop crying. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there anything I can do about it?

Formula and/or breast milk ALWAYS comes before solids in the first year. Why are you denying her bottles? Solids under a year old is only for fun and the experience not for nutrition.

OH, well her pediatrician told me to make sure that she eats and that she was having too many bottles. So, I was just wondering how to get her to eat. Obviously I am not going to starve her, so in the end she does end up with a bottle.

Most peds push solids as early as 4 months.  They are very much outdated with that info (and sorely undereducated!)  In reality, kiddos don't need solids until they're a year old.  

She's probably just going through a phase.  Feed her the bottle first and then offer solids.  If she eats them, great.  If not, no biggie.  :)

We know you won't starve her.  :)  We were just concerned when you said that you try not to give her a bottle unless she won't stop crying.  Try the bottle first, then solids, and see how that goes.  :)
