I know this has probably been addressed before, but with my almost 9mo looking for trouble I don't have time to search Anyway, my baby will be 9mo on Sat. She is a very healthy and active baby and has been from the beginning. She is not all that chunky, but she is very long, about 30 in. Here is the issue, she has NO interest at all in food. I have tried several times and when she gets anything in her mouth she spits it out. Now, this is so weird to me because she is more than happy to put anything she finds on the floor in her mouth. She is great at picking stuff up and putting it in her mouth. As soon as she tastes that it is food she spits it out and then just wants to hold it in her hand. She has recently been to the ped and he did bloodwork on her (for lead and then the usual stuff) and everything came back normal. She is exclusively breastfed. I guess the main reason I am having troubles with this is that I am having some outside pressure. My mom is worried about it, but I guess I should take that with a grain of salt because she is also worried that the baby is growing too fast
I know I shouldn't worry as this child has never been normal in anyway. When I was pg I felt her move *very* early. I can't remember exactly now, but the dr was a little surprised. She was 2 weeks late. She started rolling over at 10 weeks (no kidding, she rolled from her back to her belly and then to her back!). She started crawling before 6 mos and now is close to walking. She also has 8 teeth, and got her first 2 at 3mos.
So, I guess I am just looking for some BTDT as I am feeling a bit down about this today, which I know makes no sense
