17 month old still prefering purees
Hi my 17 month old does not have molars yet but has all 8 teeth in front. Sometimes he does chew solids (meatball, bread) but most of time he pockets it in his cheek and spits it out. Then I usually just offer yogurt or applesauce because I am worried he did not eat. At this point I feel he should be competently feeding himself solid food such as chicken, fruit, but he still eats way more if I offer him a puree meal like oatmeal. Do you have any suggestions?
