I asked about this in a question a few days ago. My daughter just turned 1 in march. I have exclusively breastfed her since about 4-5 weeks old (she needed the added calories of the formula, then I switched to fulltime breast once she gained sufficient weight) anyways, since 6 months old, I've tried and tried to introduce solids to her. the cereal, the stage 1 pureed carrots, everything. At 9 months she was still reluctant to even open her mouth, never took in more than a spoonful, and often gags while eating even the most liquidy of baby food. I talked to a ped nutritionist, she told me to just "let her go to town", put her fingers in it, smear food on the walls, etc. That really didn't do much, she still refused anything in her mouth.t one year I want to wean, for my own personal reasons. I am scared that she wont get enough nutrients and become anemic. Plus, I started researching and I see words like "oral defensiveness".
