I'm approaching to your ever growing wisdom . DD is 6 months now. Her ped told us to start giving her juice and solids (just fruits) at 4 months. We didn't do so. At 5 months he told us to start with veggies (he assumed we had started with fruits). We didn't. At 6 months he told us to start with meats. We didn't, but we did start juice and fruits a week ago.
She doesn't like juice (Actually I'm kinda happy heehee), but the first time we gave her applesauce she seemed to dig it, she couldn't wait for the next spoonful. And kept opening her mouth and smiling at lunch for the next four days. From the 5th day she just shuts her mouth tight (she looks like a granny, cute!) and won't open it unless for complaining.
What's happening? She seemed to like it, did she change her mind???
I don't know if she's teething. She has been drooling a lot, sucking her lips, and sometimes irritable since 4 months.
I'm not worried about her nutrition since she breastfeeds on demand (most of the times every 2 hours...sometimes exhausting!), but I was hoping she'd take solids since I work and sometimes can't pump enough and she doesn't really like formula (she's got a great taste ).
Thanks in advance!
