Answer: Keep offering the solid you are attempting to get him to eat. He doesn't HAVE to eat it, but he should be exposed to it. He may pick it up and play with it and feel it. That's ok. He's getting used to it--it's a process. Offer soft foods cut up in small pieces. He might be more inclined to actually put a soft bite of banana in his mouth than a crunchy cracker. Bananas, cooked peas and carrots, avocado, plain cooked macaroni, etc. And cut them smaller than you think necessary. Sometimes it helped to give my daughter a spoon and let her try to feed herself. She might have only gotten a couple of bites into her mouth, but she was more likely to keep it in her mouth, chew, and swallow it. Offer the new food first when he's really, truly hungry. If you want him to try a banana but you offer it after his yogurt or whatever, he won't be hungry and will have little motivation to try something new. Maybe while you're prepping breakfast, sit him in his high chair and give him a few bites of the banana to look at/play with/attempt to eat while you chop up the rest of the banana to go in his breakfast. Remain calm. This is sooooooo hard because it can be frustrating and nerve-wracking when your child eats a diet of about three things. But if you are anxious at mealtimes, he absolutely will pick up on that. I can tell you from experience that it will not help the situation. Keep working with him and see if he improves. With our daughter we knew she could eat other things, she just didn't want to eat some of them. She's 2 1/2 now and her diet isn't amazing, but it varies more now than it did even 6 months ago, and every few months we're able to add a few more foods and textures to her diet. If you aren't seeing some kind of improvement over the next few months (I wouldn't give it anymore than 3 months) then you should definitely schedule an appointment with your pediatrician to determine if he needs to be assessed for any developmental issues. 
Answer: If your child’s refusal to eat is more of a phase you may want to consider teething, not feeling well, or fatigue as possible reasons for not eating.  And sometimes, if your child is chronically sick or tired then picky eating can then too be more long term and try to eat her own way

Answer: Hi! please do not force the baby to have food I understand as a mother how it feels when you are baby doesn't want to have food but you are forcing is not the solution at times so please do not force the baby to have the food it is usually a face in baby's life wearing their projects food outrightly and will be there for a couple of weeks and after that it will again be normal and usual as before so please hang in there give it some time do not force the baby but keep offering food to the baby so that the baby has the habit and also include the baby in family meals and show then how to eat you can eat in front of your baby to show him how he can also eat and introduce a lot of variety and a little textures to the baby's food make it a little more interesting so that the baby is interested to have the food encourage self feeding that also increases a lot of interest in babies so please try then I am sure this is going to be helpfuln Hope this helps!
