I'm getting extremely worried and what's more so is my husband and the rest of my extended family.
I've got an 11mo son who was exclusively breastfed for six months and then I started introducing solids while still nursing at will. We did Rapley (child-led) solids so no purees--things like soft steamed veggies and ripe fruit he could hold and eat. He did have yogurt from a spoon but otherwise he was entirely self-feeding. He ate super tiny quantities of solids but was happy and still nursed as much as before.
By 9mo he was eating a little more in the way of solids but still no more than 2tbsp of assorted things a day and sometimes not everyday. Happy still nursing just as much growing wet diapers normal and all that.
Since 9mo the amount and variety of solids he will accept have steadily dropped so that for the past two weeks he will take no solids at all. I offer yogurt and even now purees on a spoon, I offer these for him to self-feed with a spoon, and I offer finger foods and for two weeks solid everything has been refused. Today I offered a straberry (he used to love), some banana cubes, a piece of pancake, a pice of soft toast, a piece of omelet, a piece of bread, pizza, a piece of broccoli, black beans, noodles (over the course of a whole day)
