Angiconda - January 18

Hi there my ds is 5 months and we have been giving him solids or over a month now but he is so picky. He will only eat the sweet potatoes or carrots and the applesause or pears. He is not a fan of peas, green beans, or banannas. I tried switching between the 2 as I am feeding him or putting the green beans on a spoon with a little applesauce to see if he will take them and lastnight he ate all the green beans but by the time he went to bed a lot of them came back up and it was a struggle to get him to eat them to begin with. Is anyone elses los picky. Also does anyone know when you switch to stage 2?

When you say came back up again do you mean he spit them up. My son spits up green beans also. I decided they must not agree with his belly. I quit feeding them to him for a month or so and now when I feed him I only give him a little bit and they dont seem to bother him anymore. Maybe you could wait a little while on the greens. Will he eat rice or oatmeal if so that should be plenty for now-you could just mix with applesauce or pear and occa__sionaly give him some veggies. I would not switch to the stage 2s until at least 6 months. I didnt start them until my son was 7 months but I did not start solids until 6 months old. Hope this helps.

Im having a bit of the same problem ! DS would not even consider stage 2 foods ! We went from stage one, straight to table food ! He would have starved if we didnt . He is 7 months now and we were feeding him mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and puddings and stage one foods untill he got his 2 teeth. Now we feed him other things too like small bites of green beans, mac-n-cheese, etc....

you can switch to stage 2 at 6 months I am not sure what to tell you about your picky lo cause my ds would eat dirt if I put it on a spoon LOL....maybe he will like the stage 2 better it prolly would not hurt to try and also stage 3 he may like stuff with a little bit of chunks in it they are very tender I did not keep ds on stage 2 long at all before I went to stage 3......good luck
