my little man is going to be 6 months this weekend. he is showing all of the signs for solid readiness (including reaching for what i am eating and trying to put it into his mouth) although when i do put food in his mouth he gags... i tried some banana, avocado and sweet potato (all about a week apart) and he had the same response for all three, he actually threw up after the sweet potato, i felt so bad! i am completely okay with ebf him for longer if he is not ready, i was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this.
i am thinking about trying oatmeal with bm, maybe that will be familiar to him and he will like it.
i do feel bad that he has had three bad experiences so far. any recommendations? thanks!
