    Default Help, DS only wants to eat bread

    DS is a few days off 9 months and has been eating solids since six months. Normally he loves his food however liked being independent and feeding himself so we have been doing mostly finger food except porridge in the morning which he is getting pretty good at spoon feeding himself anyway.

    However the last week no matter what I give him he won't eat it except bread or rice cakes.

    He has just cut his first tooth so I suspect his mouth is sore so I am trying to just go with it but am after some ideas on what I can put on the bread. I have been putting avocado on it. And tried some ricotta yesterday which was ok.

    Any other things to try?

    When my DD is cutting a tooth, I give her watermelon pieces from the fridge for her to chew on. Nice and cool, and she likes the taste. I either hold the piece and she chews on it, or she holds it herself, just depends on what she feels like doing.

    Good Luck!!

    What other finger foods have you tried? Thick cut cucumber sticks are great for teething babies , especially if cold!

    Thank you for the ideas. Will give them a go.

    Elijahsmum i havent tried cucumber sticks yet so will do that today.

    Normally he will eat kiwi fruit, manadrin, boiled egg, meat balls, avocado wedges etc. But even the usual stuff he hasnt been touching.

    Last night he surprised me by eating about half a meat ball and then he had mushed up the pumpkin piece i gave him so stuck that on the bread which was ok.

    He also slept through til 4.30 this morning for the first time in a couple weeks so i am hoping that means he is starting to feel better and will stop being so fussy with his food.
