Not Eating

My baby is refusing to eat solids at present. She is currently on antibiotics and will only drink her 4-5 bottles a day.
I have tried to get her to drink other fluids but she only wants formula.
How can i get er to drink other fluids and eat more solids ??
She is 10 months old.

This is a temporary problem and she will start eating again when she has recovered from her illness. Give her a good probiotic to boost her immunity especially with her being on antibiotics now. Use Reuteri infant drops 1ml daily for 10 days.
