Just to confirm, 6 months is the age the thyroid should be checked. PJ loves baby food, but only if it's sweet. I mix in a few spoons of apple sauce to the peas and other veggies that he doesn't care for in order to get him to take them. He's still only taking 2 oz of veggies and 2 oz of fruit for either lunch or dinner, and 6 oz is the largest bottle he's ever taken, but usually only takes 4. So, it's all relative. Your adorable, beautiful boy will get on track with food, as with everything.

Erin too took a long time to "get" solids, or like them. We were persistant without forcing it. She now eats GREAT. I have to say, I am surprised, because I remember thinking the same thing you wrote. Have hope, it could change in a few short weeks!

Love the new look!!

About the feeding, don't feel bad. Some kids don't like food till a bit later. I know what you mean about hearing someone tell you what your child's "developmental age" is, I hate that. Has Logan had his thyroid checked, I don't think they typically do it till they are a year old but I was just wondering since you said he doesn't really eat that much and he is such a big guy. At this age Ella was the same way, didn't eat much but was huge. They did test her thyroid and it was out of the normal range but not enough that they put her on meds, just something they are following. I think perhaps she has outgrown it? I know she hasn't gained weight since she was about 10 months old and she is now 19 months, but she is growing taller so no worries! No advice except maybe the test, but try not to worry about it too much. He looks like he is doing great and that is all that matters!!

You didn't do anything wrong. I too started Eric on solids at 4 months old for the exact same reasons you did. I thought he would need the extra time to learn. Eric does really well now - eats everything we do (no baby food anymore at all). However - he does not self-feed! He has never attempted to put anything in his mouth. We are also having major problems getting him to drink from any sippy cup - and believe me we have tried them all!

I wish I had some great advice for you, I guess we just have to be really patience and know that they will eat real food, by themselves when they are ready. (Although why can't that be now? lol)

We have the same problem w/ Ru right now. I started her on solids @ 6 mos. It helps her stay 'regular', but she's just not a big eater. And she spits up SO MUCH. I wondered why she doesn't drink that much.

I guess I have no advice - but you're not alone.
