My son is a little over 9 months and wants noting to do with baby food or finger foods!! I don't understand what is wrong! The doctor says he is fine and healthy but I think he needs to be eating more poeple food, he can't have formula forever! When trying to give him finger foods, when is it a good time? When we have a meal or just random times of day? Please help, I'm so confused!

Does he take food from a spoon? I notice if Isaiah wont take finger foods I use a spoon and hegoogles it right up. I wouldn't worry to much, I would keep offering fingerfoods and baby food but wouldn't push it. if he doesn't want it, you can't force him.

have you tried making him foods that you eat? like maybe mashed potatoes with out any salt or anything.. maybe mashed peas.

I'd just keep offering him finger foods, try doing it when you are eating, that might help.

I have a May baby as well. YOu should come to the May Mommy, 2005 Playgroup! Anyway, my guy, had a horrid time taking food too. He didn't want it if it had textures, he didn't want very much of it, if it came on a spoon, and even now he is barely putting things in his mouth. It was only 6 days ago he accepted something textured in his mouth without spitting it out, and he is over 10.5 mo. old. Just keep trying. Try different things. I finally gave him some barley (we are avoiding wheat, due to potential allergies) biter/teething bisquits and let him go to town. He figured it out and liked that. Just keep offering/trying. He should get the hang of it, and as long as he isn't thin or something, I wouldn't worry about it, at all.

every baby is different, Im sure there is nothing wrong. Just keep trying but dont force it each time b/c they say that can make them want it even less. If he doesnt seem to eat with u then try him eating random times or if he doesnt seem to eat at random times try eating with you. Like I said every baby is different. Im sure he will come around!
