My son is almost 13 months and still wants little to do w/ solids. He'll eat maybe 4 cheerios at breakfast and a bite or two for dinner. Has anyone had experience w/ a toddler waiting this long for solids and when did they start eating?
Re: Solid Question
Some babies and toddlers take readily to foods, enjoying all the flavors and textures and some babies and toddlers want to take their time. Some children who are prone to allergies or intolerances may be less interested in solids. This may be a sort of natural protective reaction.
