My dd has always been interested in what we're eating, from about 5 mos or so. I introduced a few homemade pureed veggies and what not around 6 mos. However, she never consistently ate them. Mostly just curious. She is 16 mos now and is still primarily bfed. She is very picky. I try offering her whatever we are eating, and she snacks regularly throughout the day. I get so confused because she seems to eat alot of some things (mashed potatoes, creamy potato soups, anything potato). It seems like she is really hungry and ready for solids, but then she won't eat much meat, unless it's chicken in potato soup, and is picky about veggies. She does love fruit, and I never introduced that as a first food. She was only given veggies at first, and now will barely eat them. So we just keep the bfing up in hopes that it's meeting her needs nutritionally. I'm definately not pushing solids on her, I love bfing. But when do they start really eating?
Sure do wish someone would write about this also.
