So my daughter is almost 9 months old, and she refuses to let me feed her anymore. She still nurses at night, and before a nap, but when it comes to food, she will not let me feed her. I want to make sure she is getting all the nutrients she needs. She feeds herself finger foods no problem. But I don't always have something cooked that she can handle yet. Like tonight, we had pork chops, and peas. Well the peas she could feed herself, but she can't chew meat yet. So if I try to feed her baby food meats... she takes the spoon, or pushes away, and throws a fit until I put something down that she can feed herself. How can I make sure she is getting all she needs? I'd really like for her to keep eating her baby foods and cereals, cuz I get tons from WIC for free, which is very helpful right now.
