    I'm curious too - eating purees at this point? I think my son stopped purees by about 11 months, and at that point it was only stuff that made sense to be more mashed, like sweet potatoes. I find if I offer a lot of foods and utensils my DS eats more, even though half of it ends up on the floor. I got rid of empty calories and made sure every meal and snack had a full fat item, and introduced lots of smoothies with peanut or other nut butters, a leafy green, bananas and another fruit for sweetness, and lots of whole milk yogurt. He eats a lot of cheese but I make sure it's hormone and antibiotic free. At this age they need so much fat and nothing low or no fat. Grass fed butter, coconut and olive oil, I don't skimp on the fats and proteins. We eat eggs regularly too. He seems to have gained weight steadily doing this diet even though he is very picky and will refuse a lot of food and he was always very low on the charts despite being a big baby at birth. My DS is 21 months and his latest thing is he wants what's on my plate, so I share with him and then take back some of his food.

    I'd urge you to look back on some of my recent posts, as my son only really started eating more than a few tablespoons of solid food around 2.5. Really...2.5. He's now one of the heartiest, least picky eaters I know in his age range. Some children just need the support of unrestricted access to breastfeeding until they feel an internal drive to eat solids. I would not endorse cutting back on breastfeeding.
