My Feelings Are Hurt
 
Taci has been refusing homemade baby food since she was just over 6 months old. Last night DH offered her a jar of Gerber and she ate the whole stinking jar and was licking her lips when she was done

my dd did the same thing! She didn't like to be spoon fed though. Now she just feeds herself.:goodvibes:

Did you try to add maybe just a touch of sugar to it? Maybe brown sugar? I think that is what I will try with Leland so he doesn't get all those preservatives.

Ugh, I had the same problem... I found out some icky stuff about Gerber though so I stopped buying that brand. :o From what I read, they use fillers in their stage 2 and 3 so the baby doesn't get as much nutrition from those. (Not flaming, just passing that info along...)

But I agree with the PP, maybe add a little sugar? They have natural, organic cane sugar at Wal-mart (I know, not the best place to shop...) and that might be a little better than white sugar I'm sure.

Our last fosterbaby did that, he was 4.5 mths old and I made his food from the start, but then a couple days before his placement, I bought a couple jars just for those 2 days-seems to me that I can't make just a little bit of baby food, I always have enough to feed for a couple days and then fill the freezer so I just didn't want to waste anything. Well, wouldn't you know it, he chowed the jarred stuff right down where as he had eaten the homemade, but there was clearly a preference for the jars, and I was feeding the same exact flavors!

So I'm thinking what kind of sugar would be best. Is there a diffence? I've got access to cane sugar(turbino?)Frucose,sucrose,glucose and lactose

i have the same problem. :( i also have heard that the jarred baby foods are a lot more dilute, so the flavor is less potent. so i have heard that diluting your foods might work. :dunno: one thing that has helped here is a touch of salt. hasn't helped a bunch, though. i'll try the sugar too! :thumbsup:

My babies just LOVED sweet potatoes. They seem to be a preference of a lot of babies I've known.

With the applesauce you could try different varieties of apples some are sweeter, some are more tart. My personal favorite is Pink Lady.
