Hi there - we were doing pretty well with weaning, with my ds expanding his repertoire of pureed stuff, and just starting to introduce protein, when (just before 7m) he got a nasty D & V bug that completely set him back for over a week. It seems that I've gone back to square one with weaning, only worse! Whereas before, he was happy to try all sorts of veg stuff e.g. broccoli, squash etc, now unless it's either a) a fruitpot or b) pureed banana, he either has a complete tizz or just gags/pukes to order. Any ideas? Should I just stick with the fruit stuff and take it slowly (perhaps disguising all savoury stuff with apple??)? As for finger foods/blw, if he does get anything near his mouth, all he does is gag/puke, so think I'll hold off this a while. Any suggestions/shared experiences most welcome. Thanks!
My DD, nearly 9 mo had a nasty bug a few weeks ago and went right off her food for over a week once she'd recovered. She did the gagging/puking thing too when food was offered. We just gave her very simple things like porridge for a while, and now she is ravenous again and making up for lost time!
Maybe your ds still has a bit of a delicate tummy after his bug, take it slow and I'm sure he'll let you know when he's ready to eat properly again!
