Anyone have a baby who refused ANYTHING but bm passed a year?

He's 11 1/2 months now and refuses ALL food/cups. He still nurses 10 - 12 times per day.

Did anyone else exclusively breast feed past a year?

I did! Up to 15 months. He had an over active tongue thrust. Would gag with anything but the boob. I thought he would never eat solids... EVER! He's now 3 years old and eats everything under the sun!

My Mom and Ped didn't look to kindly at me about it either. they thought it was my fault for not introducing solids soon enough. Little did they know, I have older kids that tried when he was 6 months old. It was just him, nothing I did or didn't do. Keep up the great work Nursing Mama!

DD#2 was EBF until about 11 months. She would mostly eat Cheerios, and a few other "finger foods". She didn't really start eating much until about 18 months when I was pregnant w/ DD#3 and my milk supply dropped off. She was mostly a grazer until that point.

This is EXACTLY what my ds does! I can't get anyone to believe me. Did it just go away on his own or did you really have to force feed him to get it to go away?

It will go away on it's own. Be patient. Children can be EBF for up to 2 years and still do great! It's the perfect food for their growing bodies.
Mine went from the boob to Stage 3 foods within a week! He did nurse till he was almost 3 as well. My other kids made it to 6 and 11 1/2 months. It was something he really needed!

Good luck mama.

Re: Anyone have a baby who refused ANYTHING but bm passed a year?

Oooh I am so happy to find this thread! DD is 8.5 months old and she refuses EVERYTHING but BM. She gags and cries so I gave up trying. I started her on avocado at 6 month and have been desperately trying veggies every since. I'll try and then give it a few weeks and try again. Now she won't even open her mouth. She just clamps it shut and turns her head.

Lately I've just been putting little pieces of whatever we are eating infront of her at meal times and she basically just plays with it. Tonight she got a finger full of potato in her mouth and seemed to enjoy it, but as soon as I tried to feed it to her she was not having it. Maybe she's just going to be a self feeder.

Is there a 12 step problem for babies addicted to boob?

I have a boobaholic too! My dd is 16 months old on the 16th of this month and she is still 75/25 as the ped puts it. 75%bm and 25%solids. She LOVES to nurse and so do I so I don't mind. Bm will still give your baby everything he/she needs. So no need to worry mama. My dd just picks at what we eat and I think that's more for fun than for nutrition.
