My eight month old breast fed baby is slow to eat solids. I started them at five months but she still only eats one or two bites. What do I do?

My eight month old breast fed baby is slow to eat solids. I started them at five months but she still only eats one or two bites. What do I do?

Be patient: Try to set baby up to watch you/others eat at mealtimes so it sees how others enjoy the event/solids.
