Picky Picky Eater...

It has been extremely hard to get you eat more than a few spoonful of your food. Mommy does not understand why my little Lina<3 does not eat well during your meals. The foods that you loved in the beginning (such as sweet potatoes, carrots, applesauce, and baby cereal), you do not want it any more. When you see the food in the bowl where Mommy is going to feed you from, you stare at it, then look at the spoon coming toward your mouth; once the spoon touches your close mouth and food touches your lips; you lick it (sometimes even smell it first) and taste to decide if you want to eat another spoon or not. Majority of the time, you shake your head, keep your mouth close except to make utterances towards something else you want which is usually not food. Mommy had been making your food since you started eating solids at six months old.  Now we are trying anything such as Gerber prepared foods, Earth's Best organic prepared foods, which you are tolerating a little bit and eat a little but it is not consistent. You are drinking all your soy milk and being nursed as needed. Besides different homemade foods, and store brought food, Mommy tried different utensil (different spoons, forks, chopsticks, plates, bowls and even using Mommy's fingers to put food in your mouth does not last more than a few bites) to try and entice you to eat more.

Difficult, difficult, difficult, that is what my little Lina<3 is. You are eating some things, and it is not like you are refusing all your food. The most important thing is that you are not losing weight and is not sick from anything :)  Will continue to eat more food, and try new foods soon, looking to try berries (strawberry, blueberries-let's hope that you are not allergic to the berries) and different types of proteins.

Please comment if there are any suggestions on how to improve Lina's<3 eating habits or different recipes to try. Thank you.


  1. Just saw your post about picky eating. My son (now 3) was like that and my daughter (9 months) is starting as well. All I can say is just keep offering different things, don't make a big deal about it if they don't want to eat something, and know that it will all change. I feel as though just as I get used to my kids' eating habits, they change. I stressed out so much with my son but now know that it is all just part of it. Wait till she becomes a toddler! Oh boy - the pickiness about EVERYTHING! :) It is difficult but if you try not to stress too much then it will be OK. As long as she is eating SOMETHING healthy, you are ok. :)

    1. Lol Kate, thank you for commenting. She is my first child and I do sometimes worry about what she eat or does not eat. I have read from other mommy sites and helpful website about baby development, that it is normal for babies to go through this, which is a relief that it does not only happen with her. I know what you mean about getting use to what she is eating then a few days does not want it anymore... I am trying to not stress too much about it because as long as she is eating something Healthy and not losing any weight and is healthy, I am fine. Have a great holiday!
