he has been sick, one thing after another for about 3 months. He's never been really interested in food, and I'm having some trouble coming up with ideas. He wont chew things, unless they're crispy like a cracker, and he now refuses to eat baby food, even his old stand by sweet potato's. He will mush things like tiny pieces of pb&j, or spaghetti, but he'll spit out bananas. I have to force him to try anything I eat(i have to shove it in his mouth) and if he likes it he'll eat more, if not he'll spit it out. I know we are behind, having this sickness has really thrown us for a loop, but he's got to eat stuff besides crackers and pb&j! Any ideas? he's lactose intolerant.

My son is the same way and has been since 1 year (he's now 18 months) and I just had to keep offering him things. The Ped said he will eat when he is hungry. He's still breastfeeding though. But he loved Gerber Graduates ravioli's, gerber puffs, crackers (and I would add cheese or pb), toasted cheese, french fries but only the middle.. haha, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes just the insides, really really well done mac and cheese, he liked chicken noodle soup, .. It was hard I just had to keep offering things. He still to this day refuses to chew or eat meat.. so I don't push it.. Oh & he loves yogurt!
