I did not even know JM had a feeding board but I am so glad I found it and YAY Dee is the host!!!
My name is Nikki (my old screen name is babygoose). I have a DD that is 3 and a DS that is 5 months. I breastfeed and make my baby food at home. And did I mention I am glad I found this board!?!?!?!
DS is EBF...actually I just went back to work this week and I pump 2x a day now and DS takes 2 bottles at grandma's. But I am having issues with him eating baby food. I am not really pushing it yet b/c I know it is just for practice now but we are coming up on 6 months and I know DS is going to need the extra calories and stuff.
Scott (DS) just plan wont eat! I have tried cereal with BM, cereal with water, sweet potato's and apple sauce. We have been working on sweet potato's for about 4 weeks now But as soon as he see's the food coming her turns his head or closes his eyes (this is new and pretty funny!) But DS will eat crackers and biter cookies.
great to see you over here !!!!! (yep I just picked up 2 boards besides Pal!)
could be he is just not ready....and that is ok.....
I suggested to another mommy having similar issues, try dipping his crackers or teething biscuits in the baby food and let him "find"it on his own terms, it may help !
Good luck and KUP !
