I think I have a picky eater.
I'll start by explaining I'm no longer bfing due to a medical problem
So DS is 12 months old now.
He completely absolutely 100% refuses baby food in the jars... he hates it.
Pablum is is hit or miss, some days he will some he won't.
Right now he has 2 slices of whole wheat or multigrain bread and real fruit jam for breakfast, then usually some fruit like bananas and maybe some berries or chopped up grapes for lunch, then usually mashed vegetables for supper.. usually cooked white or sweet potatoes, peas, ect..
We are doing the BLS because of his absolute refusal for anything baby.. now, anything I'M eating, hes whole hog Except, of course, when I try eating baby food for him, to trick him. No way, he is TOO SMART.
I'm concerned because he might not be getting enough iron.. yet formula is iron fortified so one would think he was ok? He's down to two sippys of milk(about six ounces) and one at night(between four and six ounces) and I'm fine with that as hes maintaining a good weight even though he gains very slowly.. hes just not a big baby (hes about 19 and a half pounds)
I also need some ideas here, for what to feed him. Easy things I can pick up at the grocery store, things he will like.. what fruits and veggies are safe, or is everything safe at this point?
He eats three times a day, and I usually have cheerios out for him to graze on, although so far he just likes to make a big mess out of them
Some days it seems he exists on nothing.. but i will say for the days he doesn't actually eat much he seems to drink an extra sippy or two of juice, so i GUESS hes still getting calories.
I am just running out of ideas!
