Also, babies get a lot out of playing with food, it's great for their brain development & fine motor skills so don't feel like it's all wasted effort if he just mucks around with it.

I just tried to spoon feed him dinner (not strawberry yoghurt) & also put some pieces on his tray. The whole lot went on the floor, as usual. He let me spoon feed him some but then just took it out of his mouth & threw it on the floor.
I tried zucchini slice & omlette.
So hes going to bed just with breastfeed & no dinner tonight as usual. This is so frustrating!

Just read through this thread as I was going to write a similar thread. Sorry you are doing it tough. Feeding issues are awful.

Hi heartstringz. How patient you've been! Hats off to you!!
If he were my son I'd be trying puréeing absolutely everything for a few days and see if he prefers that texture- just as an experiment.
You may like to try some sweet potato, or some pear?
If that goes well you could try adding a little puréed chicken or lamb to the sweet potato.
I'd be interested to find out how you go.

Im off to the shops tomorrow to buy some natural greek yoghurt & some strawberries that i can puree, so that if all he is eating is strawberry yoghurt every day at least it has a bit less sugar that the prepackaged stuff.
I guess ill feed him that for a while, then mix in some other pureed fruit, then build up to mixing in pureed veggies, then eventually do away with the yoghurt & leave the purees. Cant believe im doing this for a 1 year old, i feel like im weaning a 6 month old. No idea why he wont eat chunky food but at least hes eating something
Does anyone know if he needs iron from food at his age? I was told the iron in breastmilk starts to deplete after 6 months & hes almost one. How would i get iron into him if he'll only eat strawberry yoghurt?

What age would you see not eating solids as a concern?
DS is heavy and nobody takes me serious. He refuses ALL food. We are booked in with our next speech tomorrow.
He still has 6 feeds a day. I've starved him and I couldn't handle the crying because it would be like CIO tbh because he seriously won't eat. We also goto aversion clinic (psychologist) at the children's hospital. DS also vomits and we just got a referral to have an endoscopy next month he is 15.5 months old.
I would give iron supplement because most time (kids who are low in iron don't eat). Are you low in iron? Or just stop BF all together offer more water/cows milk. I would def get second opinion but I'm a worry wart x
