Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Almost 9 month old terrible eater

My daughter is almost 9 months old and is really difficult to feed. She rarely eats baby food or any other solids and when it comes to time for a bottle sometimes she will eat it all at one sitting other times it takes 2-3 times. She will eat just a little play and then eat some more. She will go 4-5 hours without eating and I just think she needs to eat more frequently. But you can force her to eat by any means and I know you aren't supposed to force them any way in just wish she would eat and be so hard to feed. Anyone experienced such a hard baby to feed? I have two other kids and neither of them did this.

Re: Almost 9 month old terrible eater

  • If she was hungry, she would let you know! My daughter is 9 months old and is a very distracted eater. There is too much going on for her to sit and drink a bottle so it's hard to work to feed her as well. She's a pig and loves solids but bottles are more difficult. I wouldn't stress this. As long as your LO is gaining weight and seems happy then just keep trying but don't force it. Solids/baby food are good right now for practice but she's getting her nutrition from bottles so try not to worry.
