DS is 6 calendar months this week, and showing no signs of being ready for solids.
Not really interested for my food, watching me eat but not copying chewing, can't sit unsupported yet - basically, he'd be happy for me to just breast feed him forever, I think.
Anyway, last couple of weeks I've been trying him with purees, baby rice/mashed bananas/baby oats etc, but it all just reappears almost instantly. He was also gagging on every spoonful, which was horrific, but that, at least has passed. He's still just pushing everything straight back out again though.
What should I do? Keep plugging on -even though it's SO tedious and disheartening, or wait a bit?
Does he HAVE to start having solids now, because he's 6 months, or can I safely leave him on just milk for a bit longer?
why not offer finger food? then he is in control and can go at his own pace also you can feed him leftovers / bits of your food (steamed veg, toast etc) and stop the soul-destroying waste of cooking/pureeing effort, which will help you relax abotut he whole thing.
And no it doesn't matter that he isn;t really interested yet, milk is all he needs atm . DD didn;t really get into food till abotu 11m (and is now a 2yo who will eat anything).
