I think the range of normal varies. By the time he was 1 DS was eating only whole foods and finger foods. Have you tried a variety of foods and textures?
How is he going weight wise? Does he have many teeth? DS got all off his teeth very early so managed to eat 'proper' food early on. In saying that he is 2y2m and won't eat 'our food' so cook what he likes each night grrr
Can you take him to a childhealth nurse to get some suggestions?
His weight has been steady on about 45-50th percentile since birth. He's a really active boy and would rather play than eat so I have to distract him during meal times to get him to eat more. I have tried lots of different foods (soft pasta pieces, couscous, cut up sausages, lamb chops to chew on, beans, lentils, all veggies etc.).
He has been slow to get teeth so maybe that's part of the problem, he has 4 on top and just got his 4th on the bottom this week.
I'll keep persisting and speak to the child health nurse at his next check up if things haven't improved.
