I'm new here. I have 2 daugthers - my 1st nursed til 17 mos (I was 4 mos pregnant). She was EBF until 6 mos with occasional formula if I was away for extended periods. She wasn't keen on solid food til well after 1 yr but regularly took small amounts purees at about 9 mos.
My youngest is 10 1/2 mos. She has been EBF up to this point. I started offering some purees at 6 mos & she wasn't really into it so I would offer 1 or 2 x's a day until 9 mos at which point I started offering more like 3 x's a day. ( and don't tell the Dr what's going on - she thinks we're doing 3 meals a day) She went through a brief couple of day period last week when she actually ate the food at each offering. Now she's back to no go - but she's teething. Is that part of the problem?
She also doesn't want to have anything to do with a sippy cup or bottle - not surprising since she's never had one. I'm starting to wonder when I will be able to be away from her for longer than 2 - 3 hours. I don't want to wean but want to maybe go away overnight - or at least for 8 hours or so. Should I focus on the solids? Should I try BM in a sippy cup everyday til she gives in? Help! I'm embarrassed to be having trouble with a second child. Also she will eat puffs & teething biscuits - but that drives me crazy since it doesn't offer any nutrition.
Sorry for the long post.
