This question is for my Italian friend and I will try to give the details on her behalf. Her 12 month old is still refusing solids.
At 6mths she started introducing solids to LO and 6mths later it's not going anywhere. She's tried different spoons, purees, non pureed food, home made foods, baby food from a jar etc. LO has never taken a dummy or fed from a bottle. She does take water from a cup though.
LO was on the small side at birth weighing 2.8kgs at birth but has always maintained her growth curve.
My friend started back at work in Dec when LO was 7 months and would comes home at lunch time to BF. Never expressed her milk.
Last week my friend had the 1 yr appt with the dr (we have the same one) and he suggested giving LO food such as potato chips with ketchup, wursters/hotdogs etc. Obviously my friend was not happy with this idea.
Apparently both mother and father weren't big on solids when there were under 2 years either.
While my friend is trying not to stress over it, it's not easy when all the other babies around her are doing well with solid introduction.
Does anyone else have experience with late solid eaters?
