11 months old baby not eating solids

0 to 1 years

Hi, my son was a healthy child up til 6 months, but since then he has been struggling to eat solids. I tried all types of food, different cereal porridge, mashed fruits and vegetables, even Cerelac... But he doesn't like to eat anything. I literally have to go after him for more than an hour to have a bite. Whenever he is hungry, he only cries for my breast milk. Now that he is 11 months and he crawls and walks with support, I am really worried about his weight gain and overall development... Please help me, what should I do?

thanks for answering... I did try finger foods too, he did try to copy me and ate a bit thereafter ; but not as much quantity as needed. Though I am trying different tricks every day to make him eat. His weight gain is not as much as expected, obviously since he is not getting enough solids. But still his weight is around the Everage percentile.

hey have u try giving him finger food ? baby usually start eating when u give him control to wht he wants to eat and when. take him whenever u eat he will see u and start coping wht u do with food. watch his weight gain every month since 75% of energy source for baby under 1yo is from breastmilk or formula. with crawl and walk thing, u can show him how to crawl or put his fav toy in front of him and watch if he will try to go after it
