Eatting Solid Food

My 14 month daughter does't care about eatting solid food. When I bring food to feed her, she never be happy. I have to play her favorite DVD, she will opens her mouth sometime. Sometimes she keeps food in her mouth but not swallow it, or sometimes spits it out. If I put her in highchair, it will be worse. The only time I feel her hungry is at night. Because I am still breastfeeding, she still eats several times at night. I read alot about let her be hungry, she will eat when she is hungry. But at night she just cry to eat. Sometimes I...

Is This a Food Allergy

My daughter is 6 weeks old and has a "rash" on her face. It seems to come and go. After she feeds (Similac Advanced w/ Iron) it gets red. About 20 min later it's just bumpy. It started on her cheeks and is now on her eyebrows and ears and a little on the back of her neck. It is really rough feeling. My doctor said to put Aquaphor on it and keep a food diary to see if it's a food allergy. It's really not workng. We have a 8 week appointment in a week and a half. It's just bugging me.

Homemade Vs. Jar Baby Food

Me again ;) Hey Moms! I make my own baby food for my daughter. Steamed veggies and fruits, blended. I did this with my first as well. My mother keeps saying "I believe in the jar foods" she thinks they have more added vitamins and such. Does anyone know if this is true? Or is this just old school talk? She was also close minded about the breastfeeding too. So, I'm just curious what you all think? Does Mom still know best? And no worries, I won't let her sway my decision ;) Thanks!!!

Babies and Berries

Several years ago a mom-friend told me it was better not to introduce berries to babies until after 9 months. Anyone else heard this? Any experiences positive or negative introducing them before 9 months? ETA: I hadn't even thought about the choking part because I planned on giving them mashed. Thanks for bringing that up, good point! I'm mainly just wondering about the effect on baby's tummy.

Feeding Baby Jarred Applesauce

I'd like to give my newly solid food eating baby (4 months) regular jarred applesauce instead of baby applesauce. The ingredients are organic apples and water. My question is, should I put the applesauce in a blender to smooth it out? How long does it stay good in the fridge? Should I freeze it (I've heard ice cube trays work well)?

What Do I Feed Her?

Hello. My only child is turning 1 in a couple of weeks and I'm totally panicing about taking her off the bottle. I don't think actually taking her off is going to be a problem because she's deffinately not attached; but I have no idea what to feed her. She only has 5 teeth, all in the front of course, and I feel like I can only feed her so much yogurt and applesauce. I need to make sure she's getting the proper nutrience. Please someone, give me some ideas.

No Table Foods?

My 16 month old son refuses to eat table foods. He'll eat crackers and maybe som oat meal (if he's in the mood), cashews and dried fruit. But that's it. He's only in the 10th percentile for weight because of this, and I'm starting to really worry about him. He isn't getting the fats he needs from baby food, but just will not try anything new. It's almost a battle of wills. I stopped giving him baby food about a week ago, hoping that he would eat food if he got hungry enough. Well, it's just not working. I don't know what to do. Someone...

Yogurt V. Baby Yogurt

Ladies - What is the difference between regular whole milk yogurt, and baby yogurt?
