That's not very helpful of the Doctor.
Is she having night feeds and filling up on those?
Have you tried eating with her and letting her take from your plate? George is not very happy if he thinks he's got different from everyone else.
George will often play with a new food for quite a bit before he decides to try it so perhaps you could introduce food as part of your play?
Does she put other things in her mouth (other than boob)? If not has the doctor checked there's nothing physically wrong with her?
Have you tried a variety of different finger foods?
