Son stopped eating baby food??

My 8 month old has recently not wanted to have anything to do with pureed food. If i give him little pieces of banana he'll eat it, but he wont eat the banana if i puree it. He's doing this with everything. Is this normal at his age? Should i try to make him eat it or just start on table food a little earlier than normal?

  • My youngest son refused baby food from the beginning. Just go to table food. It is so much cheaper too.

  • Well if you making you own, maybe it is time to try other things, My ds loved sweet potatoes, just make sure that what ever your making isn't too hard or too chunky.. Does your food processer have a pulse button, perhaps dont make it completely smooth, just leave a bit of texture in it?

  • Just give him small pieces of regular, soft food that he can pick up. Chunks of banana, avocado, pasta, chicken, soft cooked veggies, cheese. Really, whatever you are having.

  • Usually once the baby tries table food, they won't go back to the baby food. I would start out small things they don't have to chew but sounds like your son is ready for table food!
    good luck!
