I am at a loss. Dd will be one in a week and it seems like lately she doesn't want to eat ANYTHING. She used to eat solids no problem, ate what we were eating for dinner, ate good breakfasts. Now all she does is put food in her mouth and spit it out again. I can't even get her to drink more than four ounces of formula at a time. Super frustrating!!!

DS is a year and has been doing this lately. He's getting his 12 month molars right now. He also refuses to eat anything he can't pick up with his hands :? so yogurt and the like are a no-go here.
I've just been nursing him more. Just give her bottles more often, even if she'll only eat a little at a time. Having a couple days where she doesn't eat that much isn't going to kill her. You could also try mushy foods like mangoes, bananas, avocados, etc.

She did seem to quit eating the last time she popped a few teeth through... This time is fun though because she still tries to take liquids like yogurt out of her mouth with her hand. Sigh.
