who will ONLY eat purees?? And I'm talking totally soft, not a hint of a lump or texture purees! sigh...
A few months back, he was starting to eat lumpier stuff, but then he went on a bit of a 'strike' when we were dealing with teeth, several colds back to back and the stomach flu.
Since then he will only eat totally smooth purees. I keep trying to make it a little bit lumpy, or adding things like soft rice or pasta, and at every meal he gets some sort of 'finger food' but it's outright refusal. He's even refusing to eat his little baby cookies now which was the only thing he would regularly feed himself. And I think he's got more teeth coming in, so he's hardly eating anything at the moment - including the purees! gaahhh.. he's already too skinny as it is! I'm wondering what his pedi will say at his next appointment when she sees that his weight curve has just about flattened out! Although he does generally sleep through the night, so I have to think he's not hungry - still.. it would set my mind at rest if he'd eat a little bit more!
It sounds like all the other babies are pretty much eating whatever table food the rest of the family gets.
What do I do? How do I get my little guy to start eating 'real' food??
