    Default How much should my 10 month old be eating?

    My 10 month old son still loves his breastmilk. He has little interest in solid food. I always try to offer and he might have a few bites but that is it. He hates purees. Other foods he will sometimes keep in his mouth, in his cheek.

    I just feel like he should be eating more solids at this point.

    Keep offering!

    And perhaps ditch the purees and offer foods that your LO can self-feed?

    My DS hated being spoon fed but did great when he self fed.

    Soft foods: watermelon, sweet potato, bananas, various fruit, avocado

    Things he can pick up: "O" type cereal, rice puffs

    I agree. MY lo hated purees too. And don't worry..... my lo was mostly breastfed at that point... Even now at 14 months old 75% of her diet is breastmilk at least Its normal. Some kids just aren't that into food.
