We first gave her peas to try last week. She hated them. I thought it was the consistency that she didn't like because peas aren't as smooth as the other purees. Or maybe she just didn't like the taste... Well we waited about a week and tried a couple more foods since then. I tried to give her peas again today. She ate a few more spoonfuls than she did last time but I could still tell she wasn't thrilled about them. Since she wouldn't eat the peas, I gave her prunes to try instead. She loves those.
Has anyone ever gone back to a food a couple times before their baby began to eat it? Or should I just give up and assume she just won't like peas?
Kyla was like that with butternut. when we first tried it she used to literally gag on it. she hated it. we waited a few weeks then tried it again and now she loves it. why dont you try mixing it with something. maybe then she would enjoy it more.
I used to mix stuff with it.. I'd mix something more watery and sweet, like Sweet Potatoe or Squash.. Applesauce was even good with it.. and he loved it.. I would mix Peas with Applesauce, and alil bit of cereal and water.. I would make little cocktails of fruits, veggies, cereal and water lol
Sometimes it can take a whole bunch of tries before a baby will take to a food - keep trying, especially at her age, she'll grow to like these things and hopefully be less of a picky eater once she gets older!
Thanks, ladies. She's liked everything she's had so far except for those peas. I worry that this is a sign that she won't like green vegetables. Peas are one of the easiest green veggies there is to eat and if she can't even tolerate them then how's she gonna eat the other stuff like broccoli, green beans, etc.
I think I'll try mixing it with carrots. Peas and carrots isn't a gross combo. I just hope they taste good together after being watered down, pureed, and mixed together....
