In brief: Have doctor evaluate

At 6 months of age, one can try giving the baby some baby cereal (prepared with water or formula).
If the baby is able to move the cereal around in his mouth, and swallow most of it, they he is ready for solid baby foods. If the baby seems to keep sticking his tongue forward and push the cereal out, then he should practice off and on for 2-3 more weeks. If still unsuccessful, see the doctor.

In brief: Several Possibilitie

A child who has never taken solid foods by 7 months old needs to be evaluated for a possible "oral aversion.
" if your child has enjoyed solid foods, but is now refusing them, your doctor should examine them for a physical cause such as sore throat, teething or ear infection.
