How come you haven't been offering her regular table foods if she didn't take the jar foods? Did her pediatrician ever mention anything to you about this? I am a bit concerned for her and I don't even know you. To me she'd need nutrients from table foods and whole milk before pulling her off of formula. I'd work on pulling her off of formula closer to 18 months once you've had time to get her onto whole milk and table foods GRADUALLY. 6 more months on formula will do her good if that's all she's taking to right now. I'd also look into getting her on a multi-vitamin too such as Poly-Vi-Sol by Enfamil. Drops and you can put them into her milk/water/juice.

By saying "they need table foods by this age or they will be underweight and under nourished."

That is totally unfounded and no where does it say that by the AAP or the WHO. My son was on full formula till 18 months and only a tiny bit of food till 2 to 2 1/2 and never was he underweight or under nourished.

well australia is different.
this is what i read
the "WHO recommends that infants start receiving complementary foods at 6 months of age in addition to breast milk, initially 2-3 times a day between 6-8 months, increasing to 3-4 times daily between 9-11 months and 12-24 months with additional nutritious snacks offered 1-2 times per day, as desired."

No it hasnt lol

Yes they say that you can start it then but it states NO where what you said. They are not for sure going to be underweight and under nourished. And why they dont state that is because its not true.

i didnt say 'for sure'
but my son is underweight and he was having 2 meals a day then, over here is obviously completely different if you think its ok to feed your child on just formula/breastmilk till atleast 18 months, its not acceptable here.

and FYI i think by the time a child is 18 months old and still not on solids they will be underweight!

Thats just stupid to say that kids over there will be different then here. Its not a regional thing its a proven thing. You can leave them on formula for longer without issues.
