I don’t know what is up with this baby, but he wants NOTHING to do with solids right now.
We started solids at 6 months old and it was a breeze after the first few attempts.
He’s eaten his was through lots of new veggies and fruits.
- sweet potatoes
- butternut squash
- apples -> gas/fussy baby
- bananas -> gas/fussy baby
- PEARS *loves*
Over the last week I’ve been extremely frustrated. He used to gobble down about 3 oz of baby puree, but now you come at him with a spoon and he shuts his mouth! Not only will he not open is mouth, but he also turns his head away.
I keep trying to remember that solid food during the first year is only for fun and just to get a taste of new things. I double check Dr. Saenz notes on starting solids to make sure I’m doing it right…. I am! I also LOVE this graph on kellymom that shows what complimentary feeding really means.
I’m sure he will come back around to solids again. One thing I’m learning is that babies do their own thing and you are really just along for the ride.
Anyone ever experienced this? ANYONE???
