ten month olds switching to solids.....help

Erin - posted on 02/17/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




My pediatrician was not pleased with how much formula my girls were still getting at their nine month checkup so I worked and worked and got them down to 2-3 sippy cups of formula a day with spoon feedings in between. Now they are down to 2 sippy cups of formula a day and they are no longer interested in babyfood. I have been trying solids, but I am not sure what to try. They like biscuits, mac and cheese, chicken (most of the time), and tater tots. I know they need better foods than that, but the things I have tried so far.....avacado, bananas, peaches, pears, mandarin oranges, cheddar cheese, and scrambles eggs they do not like. What worked for you???

All my kids love this, me too =) I take a yam or sweet potato slice it into thick slices. I spray a baking sheet with cooking spray put the slices on the sheet and bake for about 25-30 min at 350*. or until soft. My 2 y/o eats them with the skins but the twins will need the skin peeled and the yams cut into pieces. I cut up a boiled egg and they like that..they didnt like scrambled (No idea why???) Watermelon, honeydew and cataloupe are all sweet and soft. Pasta is good but maybe wheat pasta, (Ive just recently switched and I cant tell the difference) with a little butter or olive oil and tiny bits of cooked broccoli. mozzarella cheese & jack cheese are very mild and soft. Also cream cheese on soft bread or cut up toast. tofu is bland, my son ate it when he was a baby but wont touch it now. Yogurt. baked apple slices are also good same directions as yams except check them early because they will get crunchy faster. Peas are fun to eat. Actually bagged and frozen peas and carrots are cheap, easy to prepare(microwave) and soft for babies.

I have idental twin girls who are 11 months old, along with BF they are still taking jar a baby food. They are starting to take table foods a little, but they both have a texture thing. I have learned with my other children though, that when you give them junk food, they will not want to take the healthy stuff, si I would not give them tatter tots or mac and cheese ( unless the healthy kind) We give our girls yogurt ( which they love) soft cheese, cooked cut up veggies, apple chunks, small peices of meat, cheerios, gerber puffs and yogurt melts. I have tried eggs too, and they hate them, but I think if you keep trying new thing over and over again maybe they will eat it. Its a wokr in process, like everything else with twins! Good luck.
