I have only recently got the internet again and wondered where you were. I have read your post but haven't got time to read through the whole thread so sorry if I repeat etc
I just want to say that you certainly aren't a bad mother. Every baby is different and you have to let your baby lead you. My little girl was brilliant with weaning. She more or less went straight onto lumps. Josh is a different story all together. He is still on dried foods. He is only just starting to eat what I make for him but he still gags and is sometimes sick. I can't get him to take lumps at all. He doesn't have much milk or fluids for that matter. Nightmare lol The thing is you can see he is happy and growing well and that is all that matters. When I once worried about something someone gave me an answer that has always stuck with me and made me feel better. I will use you as an example. You baby is still on jars. You are worried about it but at the end of the day he will get there. You don't see adults eating baby jar food lol I thought it was brilliant and so true.
As for breastfeeding that is a very personal choice and nobody should judge. That just really annoys me. I breastfed Emilia but josh was having none of it.
Hope you are ok and don't leave
Anna, Emilia (2) and Josh (6 months) XXXX
