He will be 13 months old in a week. I am still nursing but he doesn't eat solid food much.
I try to give him fruits, rice, chicken, toast, cheerio, steamed veggies... But he really eats a couple of spoons of food.
Should I be concerned?

I wouldn't stress about it. As long as he's nursing, just keep offering him food so he becomes familiar with a wide range of food. He could be teething or simply not quite interested in food as yet. My 20 month old daughter didn't start eating solid meals until 14 months and even til now she has days where she refuses food and only nurses but she's a very bright girl and growing. As long as he's thriving I wouldn't be worried :)

I can't see the other comments either.

Keep nursing, and keep offering the healthy food that your are. It's okay that he's only eating a couple of spoonfuls. Your milk is very nutritious.

Also give him the chance to feed himself.

give him the chance to eat solid food five or six times a day. Whenever you eat give him the chance to eat too.
