Macy is seven and a half months old and still isn't eating solid foods. Well, wait. I take that back. She will eat ice cream, popsicles and crackers. Some diet, right? But seriously, I need her to start eating. I can only imagine the talking to I am going to get when I take her back to the Pediatrician for her nine month appointment. At this point she should be eating three meals a day.
I try. I swear I do. Every chance I get I try to get her to eat. I have taken every approach under the sun for her to eat. I have tried making home made baby food, I have tried Gerber baby food, I have tried Sprout baby food, baby puffs, yogurt, fresh steamed veggies, purees, you name it, I have tried it. I have tried feeding her with a spoon, letting her feed herself, having Jason feed her, strangers, and still nothing works. Ugh. I am at a loss. What do I do?!
I recently bought yogurt drinks and she takes those just fine from a bottle. She enjoys the various flavors but she has ABSOLUTELY no interest in anything that doesn't come from a bottle. I feel horrible as a mother when I hear other moms talk about how their kid is a porker and would eat the house if they could. Macy is growing and meeting her developmental milestones but at some point her refusal to eat will become an issue.
I keep hoping that tomorrow will be the day that she makes the decision to eat solid food. So please send all your food eating vibes Macy's way.
Eat baby, eat!
