My 6 month 7 days baby not at all interesting in taking food. Close his lips so tightlyso that I can't put spoon in his mouth even he turn his face when I take a spoon near to his mouth n crying anything or if lucky input something in his mouth he didn't swallow or put it outside I am not forcing him to eat but I am worried about his health. He is exclusively on my feed. His doctar told now my milk will sufficient for his further development. Please mommies guide me how to make him interested in food till now I have tried dal chawal khichdi, Apple purée, banana shake, Apple shake, veg soup, and cerelac rice & wheat Apple both

also check if wat works for ur baby interms of making her/him smile and once they smile u can put food inside d mouth and keep doing wat makes em smile .... i keep a toy above her head (not very near and i up down the toy 2 make a distraction for her and make her eat) it is tough but if u knw the tricks u will b able 2 manage it btr .... most imp be patient and offer in small quantities (initially they wont eat more than 1 or spoon n will hate it) but if u r patient baby will learn from u

when i spoke 2 ny doctor he said we cannot force the baby 2 eat.. if forced then lil one will do as u said like tight lips, throwing/vomiting food... hence stop feeding d baby anything at that time and comfort her/him.... wait for 1 hour no BM no food nthg to be given in that time then try gvg food if still baby shows resistance then wait for 1 more hour 4 baby 2b hungry ... till d time baby is not really hungry they wont accept food ....

may be he is not ready to take solids. my son was also doing same thing. give him food when he is not very hungry. at this age 2-3 teaspoon is also ok.
