I just noticed something, Isabelle will not take solids from me. My husband will feed her an entire jar or something and she eats it fine, but for me she will have 1 bite and that's it. What am I supposed to do? Now she is waking up 3-4x a night and he is out of town for the next week and a half.

Have you tried the sweet potatos yet? Maybe she will take those from you if they are her faves?

I wouldn't even worry about it hun. Solids aren't for nutrition at this age anyway. My DS didn't even start solids until 7-8 months. They honestly don't need them until after a year. So if she doesn't want to eat them while Dh is away - I would just not stress & nurse her instead. Even now my DS will sometimes going on a solids strike when he is teething & his Pedi said never to worry about that - as long as I let him nurse as often as he wants - he is getting plenty - even until age 2. He also said nursing infants & toddlers are more likely to go back & forth with eating solids & refusing them - and it isn't a concern as long as they are nursing often & getting plenty of dipes!
