Baby Food Question ★Butter.Bean★ 1 child; Fort Lauderdale, Florida 402 posts

My LO is 6 1/2 months now and has been eating solids for about a month since she wouldn't take a bottle from the sitter while I'm at work. I've given her quite a few different things but the only thing she mostly eats is sweet potatoes. She will eat almost the whole pouch of sweet potatoes but when I give her most anything else she will just take a few bites and start blowing it back at me. If It's something that she really don't like (peas, green beans, mashed avocado, egg yolks) she will just blow it right back out. I've tried mixing other things with sweet potatoes but It's the same, she will take is few bites & then she spits the rest out.



I gave her some YoBaby yogurt this morning and she really seemed to like that and almost ate the whole thing. She also tore into some cheesesticks, but I need for her to eat some veggies too. I can't keep giving her sweet stuff.



So my question is-- do you think I should keep mainly giving her the sweet potatoes because that is what she eats the most of or should I keep trying to give her different foods even though she spits most of them out & doesn't eat much of them? Also how much yogurt is too much-- should I be giving her one a day or more as a once in a while treat?



TIA Ladies :)

First, personally, I wouldn't waste my money on baby yogurt. Full of sugar and they buttrape you on prices. Go with something like greek yogurt, it's great for her and helps with great digestion. And unless she has a medical NEED for having the calories, I'd keep up with the variety instead of just giving her what she wants.

Keep trying. Their tastes change as they go.

It can take anyone, babies included, to become used to new flavors. Continue offering the new flavors and be consistent. I agree with PP, baby yogurt is not necessary. Also OP,, do you make your own baby food? You can blend a new flavor with the sweet potatoes before giving it to her separate.

I agree about the yogurt. I would buy organic whole milk yogurt (the plain kind) and mix in some agave and fresh fruit pur
