I was cooking some chicken and 15 month old DD "helped" and lo and behold, my child, who NEVER asks for solid food was DEMANDING to eat that chicken! She can't get enough! You mean to tell me she isn't going to live off nursing for the rest of her life?? lol.gif

I've found that if my daughter "helps" she is way more apt to eat the food we prepare... or at least give it a try!

Well I spoke too soon, she's refusing to have anything to do with solids for the last 2 days.  Guess I will be nursing her until she is 30 after all! Sigh...

I was you 2 months ago. My 15 month old would not eat. Now at 17 months he eats three meals and has gross solid poop. (Yay?) So it happens fast just keep giving her food. Apple's were our gateway food. It led to apple's with peanut butter and well now he eats whatever. Still nurses three times a day but loves food.

Thank you LLQ for helping me to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  All of the kids I know IRL are basically weaned by now so I am getting anxious.  In due time... For now she likes to take teeny little bites out of apple slices and suck the juice out, then spit of the remains in varies places in the house.

HAHAHA my sons first food word was apple. And spit them all over the house too. My partner used to ask why I let him do that. I told him I was to afraid to tell him no and scare him away from food. I swear its gets better fast.

I had a spitter, too! She was also very late getting into solids, but ate okay by about 21 months. BUT. The chewing and spitting of various foods continued well into the twos. Last week she ate an unpeeled apple for the first time ever (she's 3). I was floored.

Ha ha ha that's so cute, I'm glad others have BTDT.  But picking up itty bitty pieces of food with the juices sucked out of them well into the twos... sigh....

This thread makes me feel a little better! My 17mo pretty much likes to try food, kind of chew, and then spit it out.. He's an avid nurser, has never taken a bottle (still doesn't have any interest in a sippy), has had allergy issues, and still only has 6 teeth. Because of those things, and because he's growing and hitting milestones, I haven't been too concerned. I'd love some reassurance, though! He started to eat a little more a month ago, but has recently gone back to tasting/chewing/spitting out.

I swear the difference between 17 month and 21 month is worlds apart. Also through it seems he is spiting it out you would be surprised how much they actually consume that way.

OP here, DD is now 18.5 months and getting better about eating. I can usually count on getting her to eat a little pbj and whatever we have for dinner. It's still not much but it's progress so yay!
