I have an almost 9 month old son. He is still breastfed and has been getting my pumped milk while I work. He took an early interest in solids, and I started experimenting here and there at a little prior to 6 months. He now does very well with solids, though I definitely still focus on breastmilk.
His appetite has grown recently, and I've avoided until now all talk of solids at daycare. However, for a few different reasons, I'd like him to start eating some solids there. Though he eats strings of chuck roast, salmon, chicken, ostritch, bone marrow (mmmm), some steamed veggies, and some fruit, I did puree some things to take to his daycare. I don't want them to worry about a choking liability.
Anyway, they are willing to feed him, though already the question was brought out--"we have those Gerber Puff things and those Yogurt Melts. They're great--they love them and they don't choke on them becaue they melt right in their mouth!" Yuck, gag me.
I told her something about how now I'd just like him to eat what I bring, but how do I make it clear that NO, he should not eat those things without sounding rude. I know they accommodate allergies, but I don't like to lie about things like that.
I just don't want to come off as difficult/rude/arrogant.
