DD is 8 months now. She is BF, and has been 'starting on solids' for the past 2 months. Today she ate (was fed) half a yoghurt. That's it. The rest was BM. And this is a pretty typical day. She is a solids refusenik.
I've tried jarred goo, pureed fruit, pureed our food, mashed our food, finger food. Nothing seems to get more than 2 or 3 mouthfuls or be accepted on more than one or two occasions.
hmmmm - interesting, I am expecting dc2 at the moment and just know I am going to be fully flummoxed every time the second differs from the first!
Do you sit her on your knee when you are eating? I used to do this and ds would have occasional licks/nibbles. Don't forget that they don't really need to be eating as such, just having a try out of the idea of food as opposed to milk is also an important part of the weaning process.
tbh, if she is regularly having a go it will eventually snowball into eating, some just really take their time getting into the idea at all.
Chin up. Sorry I don't have more practical suggestions - just encouragement.
My DD was the exact same. Started weaning at 5.5 months, but it was only ar about 8.5 months that she really and properly ate something. A d most of the time it was petit filous! She too was ebf and I think just wasn't that bothered tbh. As the pp said, it slowly snowballed into eating more foods and she finally dropped her only bf at just over a year old. She's now nearly 3.
I too have another dd, aged 12 weeks and am waiting with nervous anticipation to see what she'll be like with weaning. Dreading the mess again!
