8mth old not very interested in food.

She takes bit and pieces. Not really bothered about food. She is mainly breastfed and wakes 3 times a night for a quick suck.


Should I be concerned? My guts tells me not to be x

I would trust your gut :)
Having tastes of solids is the start, learning new smells and textures even if they don't eat a huge amount. Many LOs don't show a big interest in solids until they are a bit older.
The night feeds sound more like a prop for sleep, if you wanted to stop them perhaps post on NW, otherwise don't worry. Just keep offering small portions of healthy foods and she'll try more as time goes on.  It can help for her to see you eating the same food, some pieces of finger food from your plate, perhaps.
