  • he might not like the taste...try making your own baby food...if you've ever tried that store bought stuff its really gross....pur'ee some sweet fruits and give it to him

  • My son is 10.5 months old and he loves his bottle too. He loves baby food but he doesn't like people food that much. I still try to give him so people food and top him off with baby food. I will fill my son's bottle with water sometimes I think it will be a while before they are off the bottles completley my son's Dr. said they normally use them at least in the evening until 14 months old and he said that's ok. Sorry I don't have a lot of ideas but he wont starve if you make him wait a little and put him in his high chair and I always tell my son "mmmmm" and he will take a bite and say it too and I'll eat some or pretand to depending on what it is so he feel ok to eat it too. It's a lot of work, good luck. Hope I helped somewhat. :)

  • try very smooth fruits like peaches, grapes, plums..... apples and pears tend to have a chalk like texture when pur'eed

  • Keep offering. But he needs to stay on that bottle till the first birthday. Formula is his primary nutrition till then.

  • He might not be ready. It's too early to wean him; formula/breastmilk is still his main source of nutrition. though it is okay to put formula in a cup if he likes it. Keep offering table foods. Let him experiment.
