My son is 14 months old. He has just gotten 4 teeth in the past two months (a very late teether). I still give him bottles of breastmilk and baby food during the day because he does not want to and has difficulty eating "table food." He will pick at what I put in front of him, but he won't eat a lot and is not getting a whole lot of nutrition. So, I keep giving him the fruit and veggie baby food and he loves it. My question is, how did everyone else get their children to give up the baby food and start to eat real food that he will chew and swallow? I also worry about him getting too used to mashed up food and now he has difficulty with some textures of foods that I give him and gags. thanks for the help!
