If the not sleeping wasn’t bad enough, Addison has decided to add not eating to his list of things to torment mummy with!! After deciding that he isn’t keen on solids, and trying all sorts of things to get him to eat today we had some success! Some how I don’t think that it will last, but I will just enjoy the moment.

From trying to startAddi on solids at six months, it has been a difficult task to try and find things that he would eat. Once we finally did this we thought we would just take things slow and introduce new things while maintaining the things that he likes to eat. Well now he was gone from eating just a couple of things to deciding that he doesn’t want those either. He closes his lips and won’t let the spoon in, he turns his head away from me and if I push the fact too much he then¬†cries and gets upset with me. At which point I give up as I don’t want him to think that eating is a bad thing.

I have tried to get him to hold the spoon himself, given him a spoon to play with while I try to feed him, given him other things to keep his hands busy, give him the food on my finger to taste so he knows what he is getting, given him rusks to hold and munch on, tried to feed 30mins later if he refused the first time, mixed it up and tried new foods…I just don’t know what to try next.¬†

This morning Addi finally ate some breakfast, it was a struggle but we got there. Lunch was fairly average, he wasn’t very keen. But then tonight he had some dinner like normal, ate half a jar of baby food vegetable mash and half a jar of vanilla custard.

Here are some cute photos after dinner of Addi playing with the lid from the jar and then eating the try of his high chair. He reminded me of those funny little drawings we used to do in school of the guys holding onto the brick wall and their nose poking over.
