He'll eat pasta. And he'll eat other things we feed him for about three bites. Then he gets mad and wants to do it himself. But he doesn't actually feed himself instead he'll look you right in the eye and dump it on the ground.

I feel like he's not getting much nutrition and we are coming up on milestones where he should be getting much more calories from solids.


Try making pasta that has fiber and protein in it like

I wouldn't worry about it too much as long as he's nursing.

Can anyone recommend some good first foods? I am at a loss as to what to feed this kid that he won't throw...


My younger one LOVED Eggo Waffles. For a while it was all she wanted to eat - I even started calling her wafflegirl, but I think she was a bit older than your son when she started eating them.

And any tips for training good behavior. At this point, I almost don't care if he eats it or not, I just want him to stop dumping his bowl on the floor (while my two year old looks on and say, "uh oh it's not nice to dump food on the floor".

No tips, but good luck with that. Try not to react to it. If you get upset then that reinforces the behavior (encourages him to continue to dump food because then he gets to watch the Upset Mommy show). Praise him when he's neat.
