17month old still not super interested in solids..
he picks and eats like a bird. he nurses about 4-5 times throughout the day and 3-4 times overnight.
i offer foods 3-4 times a day, meals, snacks. if i'm lucky, he'll eat a few bites.
is this normal?
at his last appt (early july) he was still growing at the same rate (he's always been in the 25th percentile for weight, 50th for height and 75th for head circumference), so i'm assuming he's ok...but i'm wondering how many other babies who breastfeed this long are slow to care about solids.

Re: 17month old still not super interested in solids..
I would say it is normal for him not to care about solids yet. It is another reason to continue breastfeeding in my opinion.

I have an almost 16 month old and I'm still waiting for her to get interested in solids. I have no count on how much she nurses but I'd say as much as 1-2x in an hour when we're home, less when we're out. She still nurses probably 2-3x a night. I'm lazier than you though, only offer her solids 1-3x a day although i probably offer her random snacks more often.

My older had a different pattern. She got very interested in food at 9 months and would down a 10oz bowl (I measured lol) of food at lunchtime. Then at 15 months she went on a food strike that lasted 3 months. I could get like 1oz of food into her in a day during that time. The cause of her food strike was obvious when it ended, her molars finally broke through. Today she is 4 years old and has a great appetite.

If Carlos is growing and developing fine I would not stress about it and just offer him variety of healthy foods.

I think there are few babies like yours. I wouldn't worry but I will just keep on trying. Hope it went well with your baby. I think by now he's eating solids great. ;)
