Have been weaning my 5-and-a-half month old son for 10 days now.
Some days he seems to love his food (ie yesterday he demolished about 2 tablespoons of porridge at breakfast and around 2 ice cubes worth of apple and carrot puree at lunchtime), whereas today, he doesn't seem to want to eat anything at all!
I tried him on mushed up banana at lunchtime today, and he just turned his nose up! So abandoned that and tried some carrot and potato puree that i had in the fridge and he didnt want that either so gave up. Later in the afternoon I put him in his high chair with a few sticks of banana on the tray and left him to play in case he wanted to feed himself but he didnt seem interested.
Is this kind of variation normal?
Also, in case it's relevant, since starting weaning last week, DS has been very insistent that it should be him doing the feeding, so I have been loading a little spoon with puree and giving it to him, and he has seemed very happy to feed himself as well as smearing it all over his face/the furniture etc etc
