13 Month Old Not Interested in Solid Food

Hello I have a 13 month son who has very litle interest in solid food. I have tried feeding him solids since 6months. He mostly spits everything out or will eat a few bites and then lose interest. I thought at first it was just the texture of purrees. He will eat Cheerios and graham crackers. Sometimes I can get him to eat bananas, scrambled eggs, beans, and cut up string cheese. And that's about it. I nurse him exclusivly and it seems that is what he prefers. But I know he is hungry because he wants to nurse frequently. My pediatrician...

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.

Cereal or No Cereal?

Hello Ladies. Ok here's my problem...My new born son is 3 months old now. At birth he weighed 10lbs 3 oz, and he was last weighed in at 2 months at 12lbs. He was eating 7oz's of formula every four hours and now he is eating 7 ozs every 3 hours, he seems to not get full enough and is always hungry pretty quick. He sleeps through the night misses his during the night feeding, so he is really good on that right now. He sits up with support and is rolling over. But I was wondering when the best time was to give them rice cereal. Is he ready...

Baby Food Mill: Electric or Manual?????

Trying to decide if I should get an electric or manual baby food mill. I plan on making all my own baby food but right now my son is only 7 months and is eating only just tiny amounts. I guess in the future I could use our quiznart but that seems awfully big to be hauling out each time I what to make food..... I'd appreciate any thoughts and what worked best for you: electric or manual. thanks, S.

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.

13 Month Old Is Only 19 Pounds

today we went to Braydens dr appt.. a well check.. well, when she put him on the scale and it said "18" pounds, she wasnt suprised, but inside i was like, What the? then when she came back with a different scale, i figured she WAS alarmed, but hadnt shown it. so on the digital scale he was 19 pounds. my son has been breastfed since birth, and he still nurses occasionally during the day, usually when he wants to go to sleep. i would say im more of a human pacifier than a food source. lol. however he does eat other things...gerber...

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? My MIL is intent on his having yogurt, as she feels the probiotics/ live cultures would help his digestive system mature and handle new foods better. He's 9.5 months, and our first. Just thought to get some insight. Thanks, LSHA
