I have read up on it but he won't go for it...I always put food in front of him and he won't touch it, if on the off chance he does touch it, it's to throw it to the dogs
Since he was 6 months old I've been putting food on his tray and there has never been a single occasion where it entered his mouth, it's so annoying! LOL
The problem is that if we're eating, he gets so excited that he sounds hysterical, but if I give it to him he won't touch it, or if I put it up to his mouth myself, he just gags and gets irritated. If I take the same food and puree it with some milk, he LOVES it and makes little hyperventilating noises if I'm not shoveling fast enough LOL
I feel bad eating in front of him when he wants what we're eating so bad... I wish baby led weaning would work for him because it would make my life so much easier if he could at least amuse himself with some kind of food on his tray for a little bit, but no matter what I try he won't do it :(
