Hey everyone. I'm new here and don't know where else to turn. My 11month old ate oatmeal and purees from 6-7 months old, but at 7 months he started refusing all solids.
He nurses exclusivley still (5 times a day and all night long) He's always been a chunk (almost 10 lbs. at birth) but now he's sliding in the charts. I'm not too worried about his weight gain, but I really want him to start eating solids so I don't have to nurse him 4-5 times a night. I am completly exhausted.
Anyway, he was on Prevacid, for reflux, from 2 weeks to 6 months, but we stopped it b/c I didn't think it was helping. Not sure it his eating issues are related to reflux or not. He had major nursing issues from 4-6 months (would cry, arch head, twist away, etc,) and even now nurses mostly when he's asleep. Has anyone else dealt with this?
He will chew on a biter biscuit and sometimes put small pieces of bread or cheese in his mouth, but he gags and vomits almost every single time. I don't force him w/ solids, but I do try a few times a day.
I've been to a ped G.I., occupational therapist, and his ped, but no one seems to be able to help. I would love any advice!!
