Not so worried anymore.

About a month or so ago, I mentioned my worries with my son and his eating habits.  Thankfully, it seems like he's getting back to normal.  We went from five bottles down to four or three in a day and he's finally eating our food with less hassle.  I thought I was going to go nutts trying to figure out a way, besides pureeing his food, to feed him.  I read online that this kind of behavior is normal, but that didn't stop me from worrying about it.  That said, I guess it is normal and they do snap out of it within a month or so.  

He finally opened up when I gave him bananas with KIX.  Then, the next day he ate a peanut butter sandwich, with no problem, rice and beans (not too much, but he did eat a few spoonfuls) and peanut butter with jelly. 

Now, don't get me wrong.  I was giving him the stage 2 gerber foods, but I felt like he should have been passed that, especially with 8 teeth out, willing and able to chew.

So, if you're a first time mom, like me, who's child is toddler age and being picky with food, don't fret.  Keep on trying & be patient, eventually they'll be at the level we all hope for.  I hope this advice helps.
