Feeding Question

Hi ladies!!  I haven't posted on here in FOREVER.  I think back fondly on how much I enjoyed this board during pregnancy.  Anywho, I come to you guys with a question today.  DS is still nursing quite a bit...before I leave for work, several times in the evening, and throughout this night (we co-sleep).  I think if it were up to him, he would be content to still EBF!!

His teeth were verrrrrry late in coming in- he got his 1st one at his 1st birthday party.  I was so scared to give him anything textured without teeth so I delayed giving him table food/textures longer than I should have & now he hates any food with texture.  He won't attempt to feed himself although he can; he has the pincer grasp.  He will eat some fruit & vegetable purees and pureed meat.  How can I get him more interested in table food?  Do you think the continued high amount of nursing is keeping him too full?

Re: Feeding Question

  • Does he not like touching the food? Does he gag when eating textured food?

    I start off slow, but just introduce a few new table foods a week. Cut them up really small and just leave them on his plate/tray. How about letting him play with some textured food ?  Like just letting him play with it, make a mess etc.

    He LOVES touching the food.  He pulls it all apart, throws it, but wants nothing to do with it going in his mouth.

  • Per my Dr, child should come to meal time hungry so water is given in between meals. Milk/BF after meal/snack.
