When Lydia was six months old, I started feeding her babyfood. We skipped the processed cereal and went straight to sweet potatoes. She ate every bite with minimal mess and loved it.
We went on the cruise and were moving when Asa was six months old, so I started a little later with him. His first food was avocados. He did not likey. He is now almost nine months old and he has yet to finish even one ounce of baby food. I’ve tried squash, apples, bananas, sweet potatoes, cereal, carrots, blueberries, pears and even cherries. He spits it straight out. And adds a grotesque face to match. And usually gags to add a little oomph to it.
I finally let him gnaw on a carrot yesterday and am pretty sure he may have gotten a half of a sliver of it down his throat. But seriously, what am I supposed to do? I’m thinking of just skipping the purreed baby food now. But what are some good finger foods? What’s something he won’t break off and choke on? Any advice for a baby that doesn’t want to eat?
After my breastfeeding difficulties are you believing this is happening to me?!!
