Does anyone's LO's have issues with eating? My 8 month old refuses pretty much everything. We introduced baby food around 5 mos and we're lucky if we can get him to eat a 1/2 jar a day...which rarely happens. It's more like a few bites every few days. Sometimes he even refuses his bottle. I'm at a loss. I wouldn't be so worried but he's already so small...I want him to gain We see the Endocrinologist and Nutritionist this upcoming Weds so I'm hoping we get some answers...

Is there anything he likes to eat? puffs or fruit? Anything that he likes give him as much as he will eat. If he refuses pretty b much everything the nutritionist may give you instructions on how to mix his formula to get the max amount of calories per ounce out of his formula. Other than that I don't know what to tell you. They should have several suggestions for you at his appointments though!!!

No...he really hates food all together Seriously though...he rejects everything. We tried puffs and he gags. We've been on the search for biter biscuits or baby mum mums but can't find them around us. He shows an interest in adult food but he can't have it. We give him little tastes of like soup broth and mashed potatoes and he seems to really like it but he can't really eat mashed potatoes and we don't cook soup all the time. We already add an extra scoop to his formula to up the calories...I'm hoping the nutritionist appt helps. Somethings got to give...

Have you fried making whatever you eat into mush and give him some? That may help. Is there a reason he can't have mashed potatoes? Does he have food allergies? I can help with that to find substitutes and still make it yummy! If he will eat what you eat then let him see you mashing up food off your plate and giving it to him...meats are the only really hard one to do. Bananas are great for it but only mash what you think he will eat right then becuase they go brown quick. You can also scrape soft foods with a spoon. That is how we did the banana. You just hold the banana and scrape off a bite at a time. Maybe that would work better???
