It might seem weird, but I have a real problem with this. I am actually less grossed out when I change a poopy diaper than I am when I feed him. The puree is nasty, he smears it all over his face, hands, clothes, high chair, etc. etc. and then he shrieks when I try to clean him off. : I dread feeding him because of the mess. It's really bad. I have tried really hard to get past this, because I think he must pick up on how disgusted I am (it's hard to hide it) and I don't want him to have food issues or self-esteem issues because of it, but I just can't seem to get over it. I have always been a picky eater myself - I used to wipe my fork off when I went from the mashed potatoes to the beans on my plate, for instance. I still can't stand to eat off someone else's plate. I guess I'm kind of a weirdo about it. I can't give him biter biscuits because they get so slimy, I can't stand it. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me? How can I get past this??
