Desperately Seeking Baby Food/Feeding Advice

We are seriously struggling with the solid food thing. We are talking about pursed lips and gagging. I'm not sure what to do. This kid would rather eat (chew on) anything but food!

Today we tried a banana mushed up in cereal and it was quite the struggle. Of course, that is an empty bowl in the photo above, so it couldn't have been that bad, right? Trust me, it was. I had to be very sneaky; singing to him, waiting for him to smile wide and then slipping the spoon into his mouth.

We have tried organic brown rice cereal, stewed carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, Granny Smith and Red Delicious apples and Gerber Graduates Puffs and have had very little luck with any of those. Actually, of all of those, Granny Smith apples and plain cereal are his favorites, but he's eating anything on a regular basis. I just can't seem to find anything Lucas enjoys as much as the bottle.

I am using the Guide to Feeding your Baby on the BabyCenter Web site, which has been very helpful, but for all you moms out there, please recommend a baby food book or Web site that you turn to. Any any tips and tricks you have when it comes to making meals and feeding your children would be most appreciated too. Thanks!

The best is yet to be.

I have absolutely no words of wisdom on this.... Hmm, I guess all I can say is that it seems like he is not ready to eat all those solid foods yet but when is ready you'll know and he'll go to town on all those. : )

That picture is adorable, he looks like he's ready to be waited on! Good luck with the solids, I wish I had words of advice but MZK didn't get picky until he was older, at LMW's age, he'd eat anything. Have you tried the ChooChoo or Airplane game? Have you taken his bottle away? Maybe if he's hungry enough, he will eat. Are there any tricks in your What to Expect: The First Year book? If you don't have it, you can borrow mine. have you talked to your pediatrician?

I fed my punk out of the gerber baby jars, I used the stage ones 1st and he just took on...I took his bottle away at 9 months, well he started not taking it, so maybe like Coreen said, perhaps if the bottle is gone and he is on to real milk it will open up his pallet and he will want something different. I wish I had better words of advice..good luck!
