So here’s the deal. Em is almost nine months old and just now starting to eat solids. We started solids at six months and she didn’t take to it. That’s fine. We just sat it aside and tried a few weeks later. Still a no go. Okay…still fine. We tried again at 7 months and she still wasn’t thrilled. Now, I am starting to side eye this kid. What’s wrong with her? What am I doing wrong? I tried homemade food. She hated it. I tried jarred food. She hated it. I tried homemade food again. Guess what? She hated it!
So I gave up.
From months 7.5 – 8.5 I did nothing.
About a week ago I thought I would try again. Huston, we have lift off! Sure, she’s as slow as molasses running up hill in January when it comes to eating. And sure, she’s as picky as they come. The point is, she is eating and I am happy.
So far the things she likes include:
- Sweet potatoes
- Celebration squash
The things she hates include:
- Green beans
- Acorn squash
The things we still need to try:
- Butternut squash
- White potatoes
