Baby Food Issues...HELP! - Page 3

post #21 of 25


We started with the squashes for DD and DS and then moved onto other vegetables.

 

I was told by our ped , if I was able to skip the bottle food and try make it myself as I knew what was going in there.

 

She also told me, stick to one flavour for a week. IE - apple for lunch , pumpkin for dinner, so that the kids got used to the taste. After a while I could start mixing and matching the meals - ie apple, banana and pear for lunch. 

 

I just cooked batch of a certain veg, put them in ice cubes, and once frozen I would put them in a sealed bag - so it was easy for me to make a meal.

 

DS was more fussy - and I started adding the fruit or veg with his cereal until he got used to the taste.

All I know is, that Amari doesen't like the food that comes in the jar neither. I tried the food and to me they all taste almost the same. He only likes what I cook at home. Did you try to give her homecooked food? It might work. Or maybe she just likes to chew on things, so maybe you should try to give her bigger pieces.

I am with those that say just skip the baby food. If you get soft canned veggies and fruits and cut them small, she should be fine, my kids lived quite well without baby foods.

Cayden will be 8 months this week.  She is STILL not a good eater.  We have tried everything.  She DOES do well with baby food peas (warmed) and sometimes sweet potatos (again, warmed), but that is it for baby food.  "Real food", though, is almost as limited.  She loves cheerios and puffs....LOVES them....and will eat crackers, gerber cookies, and french fries.  Otherwise getting her to eat anything is maybe a bite here or a bite there.  She literally gags.  We keep offering it, though, and we have just discovered that little net thing that you put food in and let them suck on it.  She ate a half a banana through that thing today.  We were ecstatic.  LOL  The pediatrician said as long as we keep offering, she will figure it out one day.
