24 weeks and not interested - should I stop?

Have tried for three days with puréed food, first baby rice and then apple/pear. He gets excited when he sees the spoon, grabs it and helps to guide it into his mouth. But then he tastes it and looks appalled, perseveres with 5 or 6 mouthfuls like he's willing himself to like it, but obviously doesn't and spits most of it out. Also seems to be gagging slightly even though it's pretty runny.

Also tried offering him a big chunk of pear today in case he preferred to eat that way, but he wouldn't even try it even though he's always putting everything that isn't food into his mouth.

Do I keep offering him different food every day to try, or should I lay off for a couple of weeks? Just not sure what to do because DD wolfed down food from the very first day so I was expecting DS to be the same.

I would give it a couple more weeks, then try again. Runny foods are quite easy to gag on, maybe try offering thicker mashed foods alongside some finger foods and see what he prefers. I did babyled with mine but they are all so different.

My dd is 26 weeks and has only in the last week started to enjoy her food. I started weaning at about 22/23 weeks but she wasn't really interested and hardly ate anything.
Just leave it a few days and try again.
