    Help!!! My 6 month old is not interested in eating! She is doing well at her Peds checkups (steadily gaining weight... no sicknesses) and currently has 1 tooth breaking through. On a good day... she only takes three 4oz bottles during the day with a 6oz bottle at night. During the day she may take in up to 8tbsn of oatmeal (at different times) and we have just started introducing her to fruits and veggies but she hasn't eaten them in any significant amounts (not too fond of them yet). I have been told by many others that their babies eat 6 to 8oz bottles 4-5x daily along with some food throughout the day. I'm so frustrated!! Remember,,, I said that she eats like this on a good day... today is a BAD day!! She only ate about 3oz with her first bottle... 3.5oz with her second bottle and 3oz with her third... and has not taken any solids today!!! Really worried! This has been going on for months now... I keep hoping she will become more interested but no luck! Me pediatrician doesn't seem concerned because she is meeting growth requirements but it just doesn't seem right to me..... ANY HELP out there???

    thank you for taking the time to read
