I would never let her watch my kids again. Your daughter sounds like she has sensory issues and may need to be evaluated and get feeding therapy. Please speak to your doctor.
I can’t share my experience as my baby is too young but my mom told me I ate purées until I was 2 years old. What your MIL did is plain cruel .
Nope. I still let mine have them. Even though she eats everything that we eat. No problem with what you are doing. Mil are annoying sometimes. Just let it go through on ear and out the other. :)
No, my baby doesn’t. Exposure does a lot more than we think so with that in mind, I would just keep offering meals. It can take offering foods SEVERAL times before babies even like them! 🏾
Dont be embarrassed. Eating at different stages is one of the main things alot of parents dont talk about because it can be very treacherous! It can be challenging & it’s no ones fault. My LO was so good at being weaned, then when introduced to solids he was good from 7-10 months. Then from 11-12 months he started to be a bit picky. His favs of before, became a hit and miss. My LO is a very good eater but still has his moments. What I’ll say is just keep trying I know it can be exhausting. I always reintroduce or cut them into different shapes or match the food with a bit of their faves. Maybe having it semi puréed & not all the way smooth. How is she with fruits? Bananas, grape’s orange etc? In terms of your MIL maybe speak with your children’s father to have a word with her. She needs to understand you know your child & yes shes been there before doesn’t mean her approach will work the best. There needs to be respect & some precautions to take! Hope this helps sorry its long!
I’m sure your one year old will eat other foods when she’s ready. I say try other foods but still give her what she will eat
I would have been so angry if my MIL chose to starve my child instead of giving her what she knew she would eat. Even if she didn’t have your BlendJet I’m sure she had a regular blender of her own. Would it be ideal to have her on all solids, sure. But she’s still getting the same nutrition just blended up. I’m sorry that happened to you and your daughter.
My son wouldn't touch solids till he was about 15 months he used to make himself sick if he did so all he ate till then and even now he hardly eats anything as long as he eats something I'm not worried about it as long as he does eat he has texture issues with food though but as long as he's ate I'm happy
Your MIL needs to learn kindness lol I still eat purée as an adult! What does she think apple sauce or even jam is? 😩🤣 she needs to tone it down a bit and let your baby be a baby. It’s nice that your baby is eating and exploring! Keep fostering that by introducing all types of foods and textures. Your little one will make the transition as they feel. Look into baby led weaning as well if you haven’t already.
Don’t be embarrassed, she’s still young and texture issues are real especially to her at her age! Give both of you some grace. If baby is fed and healthy then no, you’re not spoiling her at all! This situation with your MIL makes me upset as well. The most important thing right now is for baby to be fed. Even if she only ate one thing 10x a day, it’s a win because she ate! You’re doing great mama, keep your head up!
Don’t be embarrassed at all! My daughter eats mostly what we eat but she loves a fruit pouch for when we are on the go, or before / after swim class. I always have a couple in my changing bag. You do what’s best for your little one 🏼
Your MIL has some nerve. That better be the LAST time she tries that on YOUR child
