I know solids is such a controversial topic but any other babies out there chowing down? My 7 mos. old absolutely LOVES food. Really and truly. It just cracks us up. And, he will NOT allow us to feed him. He must eat just like his 2 y.o. brother. For lunch yesterday, I took the burrito stuffing out and let him eat a tortilla. At dinner, I put a bunch of brown rice in front of him and he ate like a starving man. Now, he'd just nursed and was so full he burped up some milk. But, the moment he saw us eating rice, he was ravenous. I guess it helps he has 8 full teeth (working on 9 & 10). But, he's so diff. from his brother for whom I pureed all of his food carefully, froze it and tenderly stirred it w/breastmilk before I spooned it into his mouth.

They're such funny/individual little people aren't they.

That's funny! We have a different "problem". My DD is 9 mos and is more like your 2 year old. She's the only one at her DCP who is not eating anything other than pureed foods. Other kids her age have a mouth full of teeth and eat muffins, pizza, cheerios, whatever. And although they have a hard enough problem with me bringing in my own organic pureed food, now they're convinced I should let them start giving her food that needs "chewed". She only has two teeth and has no interest in it. In fact if you even give her a mashed ripe banana that hasn't been pureed, out it comes (and she makes the funniest faces like - HEY! What is this?). And the couple of times we've tried cheerio type cereals she's managed to choke. I guess every baby is truly on their own speed!
