Hi. My 11 m old does not like solids. She loves to nurse and is very chubby and very active and alert so I'm not so much worried about health but am a little worried about her being behind. She still does the tongue thrust when I try to put a spoon in her mouth and will not open her mouth for a spoon/my finger with food on it. She will eat some Cheerios and crackers (but crackers aren't the healthiest) and she isn't too interested in it.
We have a strong history of serious food allergies in our family. I started her at 9 m on solids and she has never had a bottle. I started my oldest DD on solids at 9m too and she was very slow with solids but at least would open her mouth better. It took DD1 a long time to eat but is totally great at it now. DD1 nursed until 2+ and I'm fine with continuing to nurse DD2 for a long time.
Is she just not ready yet? It just feels funny that she is basically 99.99% nursing now when I hear about how other babies love food.
Any tips on what to give- good finger foods, etc?
Thanks so much,
