MY 11mos old refuses to eat from a spoon let alone eat food period. The only way he eats baby food is through the bottle.**He was premature**

How early was he? My son was a little early, just 6 1/2 weeks, but I feel like it took him a little longer to transition off the bottle. We didn't do it until about 18 months.

But it sounds like you are more concerned that he is only drinking formula and not eating baby food? It may not be a huge deal if he was very early... you really have to adjust their age based on when they were due to properly track their milestones.

Preemies can also have a higher incidence rate of food aversions. Was he vented at all? Did anyone note any low tone issues? Have you discussed your concerns with a doctor?
