Hi everyone, I've started weaning my 6 month old son a week and a half ago. I started with lunch (pureed sweet potato) and dinner (baby porridge with apple puree).
He still loves his dinner but won't eat sweet potato which he used to love up until just four days ago. I thought he might have gotten bored of it and made some pureed carrot & parsnip but he won't have that either!
I'm confused and don't understand what has happened, he now gags on anything made of vegetables - like he did on the very first day I gave it to him.
Not really any help but my DS was the same. First couple of weeks tried lots of things then suddenly would only eat sweet things. I kept trying him and gave mixtures of sweet & savoury and suddenly he was happy trying everything again at 8 months. Now at 9 he's properly eating meals rather than tasting and playing. Just don't worry about how much he eats and just keep trying him with a variety and even if he doesn't like something today he might next week.
He's just learning, don't worry. He's getting all his nutritional needs met from milk anyway.
My son didn't really like purees at all, I just threw tons away actually. He really just wanted to feed himself proper food. That was nice because we could eat proper meals together instead, although it's a bit messy. Could you try that?
Thanks for all your comments! I've noticed he does want to eat whatever I'm eating. So he would gag on his sweet potato puree but wouldn't on my oat porridge with bits of banana in it! Cheeky little monkey!! I do hope he'll go back to liking his purees as I've already made tons of it! Babies... and this is just the beginning ha ;)
DD did this - she always wanted whatever we were having, so we gave her it (within reason). Sometimes we even strategically placed it on the side of our plates, so she'd think she was having our food. It would of course be the unseasoned version but it got her eating a massive variety.
