Carter will be 10 months on September 1st. He has never disliked eating and usually ate from 1.5 to 2 jars of baby food in one meal. For the last week or so, he has started pushing me away with his arms and hands. He doesn't ever try to grab the spoon from me, he just won't let me get near his mouth. Sometimes he even cries. He WILL eat Cheerios, Baby Mum Mum crackers, veggie puffs and yogurt, but everything else is a struggle. I thought that maybe he was getting molars, but wouldn't it be the opposite? Soft instead of hard? I have given him ground turkey, mashed potatoes, chicken (shredded), cottage cheese (hated it), cut up pasta and whole grain bread. He'll eat a few tiny pieces, but then loses interest or gags with the texture. He still eats 24 oz of formula a day, so he is getting nutrients- I am just at my wits end for feedings. Any ideas???
