Who does the solids feedings now you baby is eating them? Is it a shared task or is one person more responsible for the feedings than the other?

Does your baby eat better for one parent than the other? Or better for you than a carer/relative?

I feed her breakfast & dinner, DH does her lunch. She def eats better for me also. I wonder why that is!! DH gives up too easily with her if she's playing, whereas I know her cues for "ok mummy, I'm ready for another spoonful please"

Olivia feeds herself now but usually dh would feed her meals at night and I would feed her breakfast and lunch. She loves food and would eat well for anybody.

I've been trying to do her solids, but she doesn't seem to want to eat anything but her bottle from me....

I'm thinking that maybe having her try new solids while having just weaned is too many changes... ?

MIL and my mom have had good success, but DH is the best...DD will eat happily for him, but only things she already knows (rice cereal and green beans). We tried to introduce apple sauce and avocado and she wants nothing to do with either...well, she really wants nothing to do with anything on a spoon

I'm sorry I don't know your name

It might be a case of too much too soon. She will come around and eat for you though. When we first weaned Kirsty, she wouldn't take her bottle from anyone except me, but she wouldn't let me hold her, she had to be in her highchair. I think it was her way of breaking the link between mummy/booby/milk.

Have you tried giving her a spoon to play with (whilst supervised, incase she does what Kirsty did and puts it too far in her mouth & gags!).

Just so that she can explore a spoon on her terms, at her pace and as a fun thing, during playtime. Also, the baby I nannied for, we had to let her hold a spoon whilst we used another spoon to feed her with. It may not work but it could be worth a try! Even coat it slightly in something she likes, rice cereal? Let her try to get it into her mouth... could be messy
