Everybody was kung-foo fighting

This is my latest dilemma. Conner will not eat any solid foods! When we first started to feed him the cereal and stage 1 baby foods, he would gag and spit out the food. "Okay, he's just not ready," I told myself. Whatever! Conner turned 7 months old today, and he has increased his defenses! Now when I try to feed him, he presses his lips together, as tight as he can, and he does his best wax-on, wax-off impression from the movie The Karate Kid. It's a duel of the fittest! I have tried a variety of foods and textures and I have not been successful yet. I have received tons of tips, and hopefully one of them will work. For now, I plan on polishing up on my Karate moves and sticking with it.

  2. His hair is looking really red. I don't know if it's the bib or what. It's nice to see someone else using the boppy as a high chair(:

  3. I LOVE the video! Wowie - you're not getting ANYTHING in those lips! Too funny! Good luck with that whole thing. Maybe he's too comfortable in his cozy chair. I wonder if you sat him in a booster chair that he'd know you meant business. That probably won't work either, but it's worth a try.

  4. LOVE the title.
    Have you tried giving him something to hold and then feeding him while he's distracted with whatever it is? Maybe he wants the SPOON!!!

  5. So funny! I forget how little tiny ones can be! As long as he still have rolls of juicy, yummy baby fat, I wouldn't worry too much about getting it in...now if only someone would call my rolls juicy and yummy!!

  6. Sorry I don't have any words of wisdom. Looking at my kids you can tell we didn't have that problem at all.

  7. Still no success. Today I sat him in his bumble seat with the tray and let him hold a spoon. Your comments must have some how creeped into my head, because I tried those things before reading your comments! He will chew on the baby cookies. Go figure.

Tell me what you think... only if it compliments me and my, sometimes humorous, sometimes weird, sometimes creative, post! No meanies allowed!
