Thank you for all the advice, it's helpful to know others waited for babies to seem ready, even if it took time. I'll try not to freak out, I just have memories of my 12 year old taking to it so readily. I'll look into those vitamins and keep putting him with us at mealtimes.
Slightly anxious mum here, needing advice please. My 6 month old is still pushing pureed food out of his mouth with his tongue. I know this is a reflex but don't know if practice will get rid of it, or whether I should try again in a week or so. How late can I safely leave weaning do you know, or is he going to be missing out on vital nutrients? He's breast fed so I've heard extra vitamin D is needed after 6 months.
