Melanie- Mama to my super hero daughter bravely battling brain cancer. www.fightformaddie.com and expecting 1/13!!!!
SAHM to 6
Once she started eating, though.... She ate EVERYTHING. She has always been a marvelously un-picky eater. Here we are ten years later, and it still wigs me out to see a five month old baby eating solids. Mine was just so much older when she was ready.
As long as you nurse on demand, nutrition isn't an issue. There is nothing you could offer your baby that is a better source of any nutrient. Just keep offering...at some point he will become interested. This is peek teething discomfort time for a lot of babies and that makes them unwilling to explore things in their mouth.
My last LO starts solids at 7m and 8m he is just barely interested. Purees confounded him. He didn't like BLW "chunks." Didn't like cold. Didn't like warm. But I finally made a little progress when I handed him a big hunk of ripe, peeled peach the other day. Hum, he thought, that tastes good. We also had a little success with a squeezie tube of mango puree. It think the very soft texture was appealing. We don't do them every day
My youngest, who turns 6 this october, didn't eat any solid foods until the month she turned one. She still had opportunities, but wouldn't actually consume food. Any finger food given to her was explored and then dropped for the dog.
She is still little, in terms of weight, but is very normal for height.
