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...

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!!!

Cereal in Bottle??? 1St Foods Gerber?

My baby just turned 5 months old and 2 weeks ago I started giving him cereal on a spoon. I only give him a few spoonfuls mainly for the purpose of development rather than actual eating. When I went to buy the cereal,there were so many choices: barley,rice,oatmeal,organic,multi grain... I decided on oatmeal. I was unaware that rice was the ideal choice for first time. In any event, he took to it well and enjoys his oatmeal cereal time. I have read many responses that moms put a little cereal in the bottle at night time to help baby sleep...

Gerber Baby Food Plastic Containers

With all the news coverage about concerns over plastics I've started checking the recycling codes on all the stuff our son uses. I noticed over the weekend that Gerber Baby food comes in plastic with a recycle code of 7 - which has been reported to contain BPA. I've emailed the company and for the time being have switched to brands (Earth's Best) that come in glass containers - but really miss the variety that Gerber offered. Any advice on making baby food at home or resources that explain how to make baby food? I'm pretty short on time...

Gerber Waterproof Pants

Was wondering if anyone has any experience with these? We have been attempting to potty-train my 2 1/2 year old daughter with the Gerber padded underwear training panties, while trying to keep the soiled pants to a minimum, and the pull-ups seem to just serve as diaper for her. I've heard some mixed reviews, and was wondering if anyone has any feedback, suggestions or advice regarding these. She's about 30 lbs., and will be three in May. Thanks!

15 Month Old Picky Eater

My 15 month old is a really picky eater. She will eat meat, cheese or rice. No fruits or veggies. She refuses to try things I know she would like if she gave it a chance. She WILL NOT let me feed her. She has to feed herself but can't use a spoon yet. So only finger foods and if it doesn't look familiar, she won't touch it. I've tried sticking new foods in her mouth real fast so she will try them, but she spits it out and gets frustrated at me for tricking her. Any suggestions?

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.

6 Month Old Not Sleeping Well After Introducing Green Beans

My 6 month old recently started on solids. He's been eating rice cereal now for a few weeks. He's had a week of sweet potatoes, and two days ago we started green beans. Well, ever since the green beans, he's been waking at night EVERY TWO HOURS like clockwork and needs help getting back to sleep. He's never been a sleep-completely-through-the-night baby, but we usually get at least 3 1/2 to 4 hours at a stretch. Here's our typical menu: breast milk/formula on demand all day every day. lunch: rice cereal dinner: rice cereal and...

Yogurt for Babies
