My 8 month old is exactly the same, we were progressing so well, with a good mix of finger food and spoon feeding, meat and veg, savoury and sweet was all going like a dream. Suddenly this week she has become a spoon refuser and chucks all the finger food on the floor! I'm putting it down to teeth/phase and just continuing to offer her 3 meals a day...and hoping it will pass soon
I started weaning DD at 5.5m starting on baby rice & purées (after she stole a chip from my plate & wolfed it down!). It all went well & she was happily eating a decent mix of veg & protein mush plus a few bits & bobs of finger food until a week ago.
Now she's 7.5m and seems to have decided mush & spoon-feeding is not for her - the trouble is she's not eating any finger food either . Over the last week she's been eating less and less at each mealtime, at tea today she literally ate nothing, not a single thing. She's also really objecting to even being at the table, she sits in her chair and cries her little heart out - like I'm doing something really awful to her! As soon as we leave the table (I try to stick it out for at least 30mins) the tears dry up and she's happy again...
Am I doing something wrong? Am I not doing something I should be doing? Will she just start eating again when she feels like it?
