Suggestions please...

So Ahnika was eating solid foods pretty well for awhile but recently has decided not to eat. She will eat the little gerber puffs and cookies (the heathly treats) and she loves chewing on apples, carrots and celery but she won't let me feed her the baby food. Well she will still eat green beans but everything else she will just turn her head and clamp her mouth shut. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get her interested in eating baby food again like rice cereal. She hasn't been sleeping great anymore either and I think it is because she quit eating her baby food. I think she is getting hungry at night so she is waking up where she used to sleep 10 to 12 hours a night.

  1. Both of our kids went through phases like this too, the most important thing is to keep trying to give it to her, but don't force/fight with her. I can't remember how old she is, but have you tried giving her a spoon and letting her try to feed herself? That might help get her more interested, but be prepared for the huge mess she will make:) It may also be that baby foods are too soft for her, our daughter went through that where she wanted the next "stage" of baby foods offered which have more texture to them. Hope that helps, good luck!
