After reading lots and lots on here and in The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, we decided to go for baby led weaning. Around 7 months (after a checkup), I had started with oatmeal and bananas, and he ate well for a few days, but mostly he turned up his nose at food. So I just started offering him things from my plate and anytime he was interested. But he really only eats bites here and there throughout the day. Most of the time he will try two-three bites of something and then decide he is done eating. He nurses regularly (maybe every 3-4 hours and occasionally every 2). I don't have a problem with this, but he turns one-year-old in two weeks, and I'm nervous that he doesn't eat enough solids. His weight gain is fine, as is his height (in the top percentiles for both). So I have two questions.
1) Is it healthy/semi-normal/okay for a baby to have so little interest in solid foods at 11.5 months? Should I continue my unworried stance or start to push solids?
2) Are there any tips for introducing solids? Am I doing this right?
Thanks in advance for any help!!
