Baby doesnt like the jarred

I read that babys don't get all the iron he needs out of my breastmilk past 6 months. My lil man is 7 months and won't eat the meat baby food. Is there anything else I can try and give him meat wise to try and eat?

  • The jarred baby meat was nasty stuff 10-15 years ago when my kids were eating baby food. If it still is, I can't blame your little man for disliking it.

    But I've seen very healthy babies who thrived on breast milk alone until nine months or so. You just have to eat well enough to make sure he's getting what he needs.

    If you have the time, fix his meat yourself. Take a very small portion of whatever you're eating, cook it through (no medium rare yet), and then dice it very, very fine.

    And, yes, I agree with louise2, baby vitamins will fill in any nutritional gaps.

  • Have you tasted the meat? I don't blame him. I actually used to make dog food with the baby food meat varieties. Now, my dog LOVED it. Kids? No so much.

    Have you considered making your own baby food with iron rich foods? Meat isn't your only option.

  • Would YOU eat it? Bluck.

    Make your own baby food like Quinn suggested. It's easy peasy. There are some decent websites dedicated to helping with this.
