My daughter just turned one. She still only has the two bottom teeth, which might have something to do with this issue, I'm not sure. Anyway, she doesn't always want to eat what she is served. I make sure the pieces are small enough for her to gum and swallow. I get very frustrated trying to get her to eat enough. Sometimes I resort to baby food just so I know she's got something in her tummy. My main issue with that is that she refuses to eat all 3rd foods, so she gets pureed vegetables/fruits. She also gets between 16 - 24 ounces of either milk or formula a day.
How do I get her to eat what she is given? She's still too young to go without eating but I don't want to start bad habits either.
