…At 12 months old who does not eat “real” food? She only eats pureed foods plus Cheeri.os, assorted puffs and Mu.m M.ums. I’ve given her Quiche, scrambled eggs, avocado, banana etc. but those hardly count since those are super soft foods too.
It is partially her and partially me. She doesn’t seem to want to eat anything more solid than a scrambled egg (other than the snacks mentioned above). I’ve tried to give her food off my plate and she refuses it.
The part that is my “fault” is that I don’t push her. I’m too scared that she will choke. That is so lame, right?! I’m terrified, actually.
I realized today at my mom’s group that she is the only one who doesn’t eat real food. One little girl, full-term, one year old who doesn’t have any teeth eats real food – pieces of cheese, fruit, etc.
Help me! What can I do to get her to eat “human” food? What can I do to take away my own fears? What were your little one’s first real solid foods? How big were the pieces? How long did it take to transition your little one away from primarily purees?
Thanks in advance for helping me not be a crazy mom with a two-year old who only eats pureed foot 🙂
