My son is 13 months old. He did not start eating solids until he got his bottom two teeth at 11months. He is currently nursing 4 to 6 x's a day and drinking milk, however I cannot get him to eat food. He has never liked baby food so I give him table food. Sometimes he eats fruit, sometimes pasta, sometimes crackers but not a consistent basis. Everyday is frustrating trying to figure out what will he eat today. My Mom has said I just need to make him eat because he does not know what he likes. (example oatmeal) I agree that he does not know what he likes but I have tried to force him to eat and it does not make either of us happy. I don't want food to be a power struggle later on. My son is a high needs strong willed child. Any suggestions? Has anyone else force fed?
