Being the father of twins, I have plenty of experience in dealing with picky eaters. Especially when they were younger and coming off of formula. We did introduce foods one at a time (food allergy reasons), but also if we found that they were being picky or not eating, changing the way it was presented. Now, from what you've tried, it seems like you have done some of this. I'd be interested to hear what creams, etc... she is eating. One way that I found successful is to introduce a food, or try a food that they previously did not like, with something they do like. So in this case, as unappealing as it may seem, perhaps putting apples in the soup might help. You want to gradually work up to the solids. Thickening liquid meals also has helped. Adding things such as oats, ground rice, etc... to thicken things is another way to work on building her accepting other solids. Yogurt is a great food. You can have the yogurts specifically marketed for babies, which are quite watery, and build from there, adding little bits of fruits here and there, then thickening it, and on and on. We did this and our kids enjoyed it. They no longer eat the baby or toddler yogurts, enjoy greek yogurts with fruits and dip waffles and the sort in them. Persistence and patience are a key though. I don't know how long ago she stopped milk/formula, but if it was recently you might have to be a little more patient. If it was a while ago, and through all these interventions you still are not having success, I'd speak to your pediatrician.

Again, it can be a matter of patience and persistence, and trying combinations that you might not normally think of but they might actually enjoy, and then gradually separating the combinations (i.e. the solid/fruit mixed in with the soup is now a bit bigger and on its own).
Hi welcome, I hope you were able to see what I had typed above
I have tried different vegies soups, oatmeal, yogourt,
My kids aren't the biggest vegetable fans, so of course we find creative ways of infusing them into other foods. Grilled cheese sandwiches aren't simply grilled cheese, but may have spinach, brocolli or other greens in them. They eat them, usually. Sometimes they don't and pick the veggies out.
I see you went offline. I hope I was able to assist you. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to continue talking! Take care! John
Sorry.... she loves peas soup, lentil, beans, squash ans so forth. Problem.. she cannot feel anything in little peaces because she spit it out and then.... end of the time food. She loves the botle so I ma giving her oatmeal with cow's milk liquify on the botle. I am getting rid of the formula because the constipation issue...
I am just switching 100% cow's milk this week. I was afraid before because the eating issue. There are some days that she only wants the bottle
Yes I will try to get rid of the bottles my problem also is she stills wake up at night twice and of course she takes the bottle 16 oz total.
Ok I will try to reduce the amount on the bottles and see. I will right you afterwards,
