I need some more ideas for feeding my 12 month old. She is my pickiest baby by far, and it's driving me up the wall! She is dairy-free, although she does tolerate kefir and yogurt in very small amounts. She is still breastfeeding a lot, drinks water (although not a whole lot).
She isn't eating a lot in the way of grains; a little sourdough bread (like crumbs), a few nibbles of crackers, cheerios, not much else.
She *will not* eat bananas, avocados, or mangoes, except in a smoothie. I've been trying for months, and she consistently makes a face at me like I'm trying to poison her. Not sure if it's a texture thing or what, but I've given up trying to get her to eat them for now.
She will almost always eat:
Meats, including chicken, turkey, roast beef, pretty much anything very tender and mushy.
Apples without the peel
Small sips of my smoothie
Waffles (blender batter version)
Just fruit dried fruits
cheerios (the wheat-free variety)
dry beans of all kinds
anything in those squeezable baby food packages
Hit or miss foods:
I know that babies need you to keep offering foods to them, since it can take awhile for them to get comfortable with the idea of certain foods. That's not really my problem. What is the issue, is when she's screaming (literally, and very loudly) non-stop because she's hungry, but she won't eat anything that I can put in front of her quickly. She doesn't have enough teeth to really chew anything properly, and I don't always have something readily available for her. I feel like I'm just in a rut, and need some ideas to get us moving again.
