So, 2 days ago my 6 month old son decided he doesn't want to eat from me anymore. When my hubby feeds him he eats but just not me. And it's only with his baby jar food, if I am giving him mac and cheese and chicken when we are eating he is fine with eating from me. But baby food he wants no part of it. I get one spoon full in and then he just looks at me and closes he mouth. What should I do? Should I just switch him to all table food or should I keep trying with this jar stuff. I need help. It's even happening with his yogurt in the mornings. He will gladly eat from his daddy but when I try its a no go. HELP, PLEASE!!

No problem...glad to be of help...just watch out for those couple of foods that are choking hazards at their age....I don't remember the list of those, but you can ask your doctor.

So my only suggestion is that maybe you should talk to your doctor if maybe you don't eat as healthy as you should(I know I don't always!) or if you eat veggies and stuff like that all the time, then let him eat off your plate! My friend as soon as her baby could eat table food(she eats super healthy compared to me!!) gave him everything you could think of(that was okay allergy wise/age wise) so he should be fine.....but if you are truly concerned I would talk to his doctor.

We do actually eat pretty healthy.  Ever since I got prego my hubby made me change my eating habits. So the stuff he is eating is lots of veggies, chicken and pork, etc. I did actually just get home from the supermarket and I got a whole bunch more fruits and veggies for him to eat cause he seems to like that better. I think this will help us save some money too cause those jars gets a little pricey. Thank you for the advice.
