Sorry, the last few days have been a little crazy...
haha Yeah, they are smart, and stubborn! Just keep the ultimate goal in mind and stick with it. You are doing really really well. Switching them over can take months, and some take longer than others. You are really not going at a bad pace at all. Perhaps try hand feeding her a few small pieces each day, along with putting some teeny tiny ones in the soup. Hopefully that will help speed up her recognizing them as food. Also, since she is still not up to chunks, I would try adding in 1/8 tsp of squash baby food, or canned pumpkin to give her a little fiber. If she takes that, then slowly move it up to about 1/2 tsp a day (so 1/4 tsp in morning soupies, and 1/4 in dinner soupies). Keep me posted!

she really likes the squash baby food im going to start feeding her it again she is eating the chunks now they are very tiny just enough for her to not notice them i put 10 tiny pieces into each tray and she eats all of them except when i add ones that are tad bigger so she is making progress now which i am excitied. tommorrow im guessing you would want me to make them larger just a bit?
If you get this in the morning, go ahead and keep them the same size for one more day, so she really gets used to them. Then, on Wed make them a tiny bit bigger. For tomorrow, instead of making them bigger, try adding more. Keep it up! And try not to overfeed the squash, but about a teaspoon or less a day should be good. You can judge it by her poops too. Start with a little and watch her poops, add a little more and check poops again. When you see the poop start to look a bit more solid and well formed, don't give her much more than that.
