Late bloomers with solids?
Ds2 is 13 months and has finally become sort of interested in solids. We offer him 3 meals and I would say he is currently taking breakfast as the biggest meal.
He refused to allow me to feed him from the beginning and had a tongue tie that hinded him from swallowing properly, plus extreme to the 100000th degree of reflux, and food allergies. So he is super delayed.
His new thing is he can self feed using a spoon. This sounds really silly but now I can make puree and put it in a bowl. And he can scoop it out on the spoon and feed it to himself. It has opened up a lot of doors for us.
When he self feeds finger foods he spits most of it out. I feel like he has texture problems. He is not allergic to meat so we can feed him chicken, and he chews and chews and then spits it all out.
We have found those Ella's Kitchen bags awesome. They are good for FA babies and he drinks they up like it is a sippy. Lol!
I don't really have a point of this thread except to maybe chat with other mommas who have late blooming babies with solids. For whatever reason. And to get some ideas of new ways to present foods.
