I posted about a week ago about DS (6 months) who we have recently started on solids, and needing a bit more advice please?
So, we've been offering solids for about 10 days now and hes just not interested (most of the time). At first he would open his mouth for the spoon (and usually take a tiny bit) but now he just closes his mouth tightly & turns his head away. I've tried homemade rice cereal, puree pears & pumpkin-not interested. However, when my mum fed him a few days ago he took the most he has ever taken of some pears/cereal (maybe had 1-2 tablespoons total). He wasn't waiting eagerly for the next mouthful or anything, but he did eat some. He will also take a (tiny) bit when DH feeds him (like, 1 or 2 teeny spoonfuls).
A) has anyone else had this where baby will take solids from someone other than mum (I'm BFing him by the way)?
B) should I give it a rest for a while (like 2 weeks) because he seems to be getting frustrated with me trying to feed him & I don't want to put him off!
My gut feeling is stop for a while. Then maybe try a finger food approach.
Any advice or similar experiences welcome. Thanks!
Edited cos I didn't proof read--oops!
