We have continued to slowly start Ledger on solid baby foods. He did well with carrots and then his willingness to eat declined as we tried squash, then peas, then green beans. His mouth has become the "iron trap". When he doesn't want to eat, he just clamps his lips and jaws shut and won't open them for anything. I decided to try to bribe him to open his mouth by giving him a little applesauce. But no! He wouldn't eat that either. He also wouldn't swallow down his baby Tylenol on his vaccination day. He doesn't want us to feed him anything!
But we're not giving up.
We're continue to try to feed him. This week, we are going to feed him at every evening meal. Hopefully he'll just eventually give up and open his mouth. But for now, we're going to wrestle the food in him one way or another. Here is a picture of tonight's attempt with green beans. Notice that he has them all over his face (including his forehead) and bib but not too much in his mouth!
