    I second this too. Please don't stress. My DS2 was very fussy at around 6-8m he wouldn't eat any vegetables from a spoon and wasn't really interested in anything except purred apple or sometimes baby jar food.
    He didn't even start drinking water until 11m

    "FOOD FOR FUN UNTIL AROUND 1"!!

    Finger food and BLW is a good idea too.

    Thanks ladies. This is exactly what I've told her. He's obviously isn't ready. It's amazing how many of my friends haven't heard of BBL! They think im crazy for giving my bubs finger food.

    Agreed, I just imagine that I'll be more time poor this time round and BLW is easier 😉

    My 8 month old is the same!! Most days she is just not interested in puréed foods at all! I have been persevering since 5 months old! I'm
    Lucky If she has 2 teaspoons a day. I am now incorporating some BLW into her routine. She has no teeth though So is hard.
    Today she had those 2egg/1banana pnacakes cut into strips, and some roasted pumpkin sticks.
    Your bub might prefer this too as PP have suggested. Good luck! It's exhausting when they r fussy

    That's ok (no teeth) they chew with their gums! (soft finger foods)

    Try some roasted sweet potato and pumpkin fingers (keep in mind they shrink a lot when roasted), the outside makes it easier for them to pick up and then they can just suck the soft inside out of it :-)

    Definitely sounds like he isn't ready. My boy is also 6.5mths, sometimes he eats quite a bit, other days he won't touch a thing. They are still so little and learning.
