My 9.5 month old daughter has always been great at breastfeeding. And she always asks my husband and I for bites of our food.
When it comes to feeding her real food for meals she only eats a few bites and then she is "over it".
We have tried doing puréed food, bite sized pieces so she can feed herself, and sharing our meals. She just won't eat very much real food, but I know she likes it.
This morning, for example, she ate 4 spoonfuls of Malt o Meal, and was done. But then she wants to nurse. If I coax her to eat more she gets upset and I don't want to "force feed".
