I know it is not uncommon for babies to eat all kinds of things they can get their hands on, but it just seems unusual that my 7 mo LO goes after the paper! he loves chewing on it! But when it comes to chewing on food he just gets nasty looks on his face and spits it out. Does anyone else have babies that love to chew paper? And could it mean he has low iron?
How can I get him interested in chewing on real foods? I've tried banana-still hates it, watermelon-seems to tolerate it for a little while, and apple which doesn't seem to interest him at all. Oh and cantaloupe he really doesn't like. I am so close to trying purees just to help him out... does anyone else have this impatient desire?
