The Pediatrician Answers:
Her nutrition won't suffer if she remains solely on breastmilk for the time being. Sometimes, a child seems to "know" they are allergic to certain foods and will refuse to eat them until they can be tolerated. Some children are extremely sensitive to changes in textures or tastes; these babies need a slow and gentle introduction to foods. Independent-minded babies may refuse to be spoon-fed, but will gladly scoop up foods and feed themselves.
A child with a swallowing difficulty or developmental problem will not be ready for solids at six months; solids are introduced to these children when they are ready for them. Virtually all babies who can physically take solids will eventually eat them, but some take longer than others.
