My 8 months old baby is not eating anything. I tired feeding her mashed rice with ghee, cerelac, Gerber's, banana, fruit puree,etc. Even if I force her to eat something she is crying and vomiting. I don't understand what to do. I have to feed her for every two hours which I wanted to reduce actually. She doesn't even drink formula milk also.

you need to feed 3 solids only in a day apart from 3-4 milk feeds. If you try forcing more food/milk to the child, she would resist as she is not hungry. If the child is on your milk and you are lactating enough, till one year of age you may not give formula milk at all. Hope this helps.
