Re: only likes banana with cereal and breastmilk

We had the banana preference issue, too Once he discovered bananas he ONLY wanted bananas.

For a few weeks, I withheld them all together and tried other things. Eventually he was eating other things and enjoying them.

Where it did work out great for us was when I would make a batch of something he hated (turkey with peas, for instance, he doesn't like pureed peas) and I would doctor it with mashed bananas. All of a sudden he was eating it for the bananas! And I was getting peas and turkey into him, so it worked out.

It only lasted around a month. His fourth word was "nana"
