Beth Ann asks:
For those who delay solids, how do you get your kid to eat! My baby didn’t start eating anything until around 10 months, and I can’t get her to eat anything!
First, don’t get too worried about it! Breastmilk or formula should be the primary source of nutrition until age one, and I swear the more you want the little boogers to eat, the more they refuse. 😉 Just keep offering.
My kids much preferred things they could feed themselves. Anything that was soft-ish and easy for them to pick up was gobbled up (steamed/cooked veggies, soft fruits, beans.) They especially loved getting to eat what I was eating, so I found they’d eat more if I gave them food from my plate vs. putting the same darn things on their own plate!
It is messy of course, but try a bowl of whole milk yogurt with a spoon. Something about the spoon makes it really fun for little ones. Just be ready with a mop and a bath. 😉
Do you have tips for Beth Ann?
