Re: My 13-month-old hates solids. Need help with a picky eater!
It sounds like you are doing everything exactly right! And believe it or not, your kid's solid food diet actually sounds quite healthy. He's eating starch, and veggies, and fruit. You haven't caved in to offering him junk food.
According to my pediatrician, breastmilk provides for all of a baby's nutritional needs until they turn one. After the first birthday, solids begin to be an important part of their diet- but the quantity of solids a child eats can be very small at first. It's not like the baby goes to sleep on day 364 needing only mama's milk and wakes up on day 365 needing 3 full meals of solids per day!
At 13 months, my kid was still pretty much 100% breastfed. But at 14-15 months she all of a sudden discovered solids, and never looked back. Your kid will, too! Just keep offering him a variety of healthy solids and eventually he's going to get into it.
