Lo has tried everything from the 1st food except prunes so far. he HATES bananas and peaches. i'd love for him to at least eat a little of each but not sure how. i dont want to force him nor do i want to waste food. i tried mixing the peaches with a little baby cereal and he seemed to be okayish with it. i haven't done it again because im not sure if its even okay to do it that way. also i have a feeling hes going to poop a lot after eating prunes, hes already got some epic diaper bombs after eating baby food sometimes. is it alright to just have him try prunes and not feed it to him regularly?
Have you tried veggies?
Maybe the fruit is too sweet or tart for him.
Give him real bananas and peaches?
Also there's foods they don't make baby food for that are acceptable first foods such as avacado and plums.
I make my own baby food and freeze it, so when I thaw it out it tends to be watery. I use baby cereal to thicken it. I use the plain barley cereal for most stuff but use the one with fruit when adding to fruit baby food.
Have you tried those baby foods? They are disgusting! Maybe he will eat them if you actually make them yourself!
Quoting A is Me:" Have you tried veggies? Maybe the fruit is too sweet or tart for him."
i started him off with the veggies. the greenest to orange first and then the fruits. to me the bananas tasted weird and the peaches tasted sour. the peaches seemed a little better after adding cereal and i was thinking of pureeing fresh bananas instead.
On the odd day my son gets the jarred stuf...he loves it :( , super insulting when I take the time to make my own...lol
It's fine. LO sometimes doesn't want his baby food but if I put a little cereal on the spoon with it he eats it right up. I'm not sure about prunes, we haven't given him any. I'm sure it's fine I'd just keep an eye on how much it makes him poop the first time and go from there.
i'll have to look up what all i can puree for him and freeze it then. i've been a little uneasy about the pre-made stuff cause of preservatives.
This website has awesome recipes that are easy!
thank you everyone for the help :)

You can pur
I wouldn't do the prunes unless he's having a hard time going to the bathroom because they will make him go. And it's completely fine to mix it with the cereal or oatmeal. That's the only way I give it to my DS. :)

You can puree anything you want. You can also cut up steamed veggies or soft fruits and let him try to feed himself. I started that at 6 months with my daughter and she eats anything and everything we eat and has only eaten from a spoon a handful of times. Check out baby led weaning or homemade purees
