And I mean hates them. He puked up the one Puff we got him to swallow. We give him tastes of everything and he always makes a face. Applesauce, banana, yogurt, veggies, bread, he wants nothing to do with any of it. We're doing baby led weaning so I'm not doing purees just giving him stuff that I know he could eat but he doesn't want to even try it. He also doesn't put things in his mouth which is something his brother also did. That has me worried. I can give him small toys and he won't try to swallow them. I did the same thing with Dominic, I once gave him M&M's and he just played with them. Gave my SIL a heart attack. Paxton is the exact same way and if he's not putting things in his mouth then he's not going to put food in his mouth either. I'm not ready to wean or any of that but I do want him to try food and get used to textures. Is anybody else having this problem?

I remember my mom telling me my oldest brother wouldn't eat baby foods, and Athena won't eat some of the ones we try, but I don't know. I heard you have to give them each food 20 times before they accept it, but I'm not doing that. LOL. I know you said you you aren't doing purees, but it may be something to try at least to see if he takes it. I'm sorry I'm not more helpful then that.

Cameron puts EVERYTHING in his mouth. But when we first started giving him food, he wouldn't (which we thought was odd). Probably in the past week to 10 days, he's actually started putting it in his mouth, so after almost a month of actually being presented with the food. Perhaps give him some time? No idea how long you've been trying though.

Why is it that you don't want to try purees again? I found that Leo takes to the purees (it does help introduce food texture....)

Noah wasn't interested in food for a while and i only just figured out a way of getting it into him today - I pop him in his highchair with a few slices of toast, peppers, cooked carrot, strawberries or broccoli to play with -he rarely puts them in his mouth but it does give me time to spoon feed him yogurt, baby porridge, mushed veggies or pureed fruits. The distraction technique

I haven't given Sarah anything yet other than a pickle which was only to keep her occupied at a restaurant the other day. I would guess she will do ok because she puts everything in her mouth but it might get washed away with all her drool.

I could have written this post word for word. He is completely opposite of how my daughter was.

Michaela wasn't keen the first week or so, but now she's loving her food and eyeing all of ours like a little hawk. Maybe he just needs time to get used to it?

We tried food for the first time earlier this week. Bananas he cringed when he touched them. So we mashed them up and mixed with some breastmilk. He made faces and gagged like he was going to throw up when we spoon fed them to him. We tried some pureed pears thinking maybe the banana wasn't ripe enough or was too lumpy and he did a TINY bit better with those but still made faces and did not seem happy. He'll pick up trash and gnaw on my foot all day long, but when it comes to real food, nope. Not interested.

We are doing baby led solids. So far, we have offered many things, mostly whatever I am eating. There are only two things she will eat, however: pickles and shredded cheddar cheese. I did try giving pureed carrots despite my desire to do solids only, and she ate about 5 tiny baby spoons. Then she turned her head. I also tried yogurt, which was a no go.
