I guess I know that if L isn't putting food into his mouth then I shouldn't force it, but he puts everything in his mouth EXCEPT for food. We have tried banana, broccoli, sweet potato and pear. He did mouth on the banana for two days, had a little broccoli and then refused it, same with sweet potato as with broccoli and wouldn't even put the pear in his mouth this morning. I've tried not feeding him too close to the time we're trying solid food and feeding him only a little so he isn't overly hungry. Any suggestions or stories? I am trying to make this fun, but honestly DH and I don't even cook for ourselves so we're making special steamed pears for him and he doesn't even want them.
