Re: Bf & Teething

I'm guessing he'll be eating solids again in no time, he's probably just uncomfortable from teething...nursing is comforting and nutritious, just make sure you nurse him as long and often as he wants, and keep offering solids so he can have them when he's ready.

Have you tried finger foods at all? My boys "boycotted" mushy/pureed babyfood around 9 months, but really got excited about table/finger food. Cooked peas and corn kernels, cut up ripe banana, strips of wholegrain toast, tofu chunks, cooked potato pieces, basically anything soft and easy to mash up...they really enjoyed feeding themselves at that age. Maybe he'd like to try it?
