    Should the weet bix be watery? Tried the egg, didn't work. She loves fish, might get some fresh fish. I want to fatten her up. And make sure she's eating enough. I know her purees are full of goodness. But still......

    I don't believe teeth make any difference. Gums are incredibly strong and do a great job - my kids ate meat, eggs, veggies etc...with very few teeth.

    Are health professionals worried about your DD's weight or food consumption? Some babies are just petite and not huge eaters. Two of mine were ravenous, chubby babies but my third is like a little bird and at 3.5 wears his 6 month old cousins hand me down singlets! I just offer a wide variety of foods - I try to offer foods high in good fats - we eat together and if he's hungry he'll eat and if not, he'll just leave it.

    I think as long as there are no medical concerns with FTT or sensory issues then just keep offering and let her eat at her own pace because all kids are different 😊

    Nope - Id say if she's still on purées then she's just not used to the texture of whole food? I'd definitely be stopping the purées , at 12 months she should be able to eat the same as us - everything- the only thing I held off on was obviously whole nuts

    DS didn't know any different! He's only had egg or Avo or nut butters on his toast since he was 6 months old

    My son is 5 and still will not eat weet-bix or eggs. I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe mash the veggies instead of purée and see how that goes? At that age he still ate porridge, but not now unfortunately. Pasta with tomato and veg sauce?

    She does eat normal food, I'm a little concerned as she doesn't have a mouth full of teeth like her brother did.

    I wouldn't worry about the teeth. Our DS didn't have any until 9 months and his dad didn't have any until he was 12 months! They are pretty good at gumming food anyway.
