More Eating Challenges?

Take a look at that chub. Clearly this boy does not have nutrition issues.

Yet he has decided to give us some trouble with his eating habits. Don't get me wrong, he loves, loves to eat. Obviously. But really what he loves is his bottle. Solids? No thanks. Actually, NO WAY!

At eight months he should be eating baby food. Shoot, at 8 months his older sister was proficient at eating meat. But he does not want to chew anything. He does not want carrots, sweet potatoes, peas, pears, applesauce. What baby do you know wants to spit out perfectly good sweet bread?

He's growing the proper hardware just fine. Take a look at that Baby Shark! He has 4!!!

Now if only he would decide to use them.


  1. I had one that didn't eat a bite without gagging until 9 months old and then it was slow going. I was horrified because no one supported breastfeeding alone for six months much less 9 months! BUT.. it all worked out perfectly. :D

  2. I love this pic of him Kate! (top one!)
