Baby will not eat solids

My baby girl will be 8 months next week. I started solids slowly around 4 months. She was doing pretty good at 6 months. But now all the sudden she will not eat any foods. Ive tried everything. She turns her head so I cant get to her mouth. And if I do get some in she starts gaging? Has anyone else experieinced this?

I haven't experienced this...but have you tried to let her feed herself with whats on your plate... ie put some avacado on your plate and a little on hers - eat yours. each day try something different that she can eat(gum) and let her decide.

my dd at times wouldn't let any one feed her she exhibited an independent streak early in age... this could be a possiblity of your lo is asserting her personality?
