so my little guy is 9 months old. he is not really interested in solids. i have been offering them to him on and off for months. but he makes the most awful faces and closes his mouth and pushed the spoon away. sometime making himself gag it all up. he's been a good nurser and has had nothing but the breast. his weight gain is also great. he's a plump healthy baby.
so we went to new pediatrician this week (as we relocated) and i got this whole speech about if he doesn't start eating them soon it's going to be really hard to introduce them to him. and now she's got me all worried about his iron. they are insisting on drawing blood to test his levels and giving him a supplement.
i get wanting to make sure he's got enough iron and i'm inclined to wait until at least after his test results to see if he is in fact anemic.
but what do i do about the solids. i've tried everything. homemade mixed with breastmilk, store bought organics, cereal... am i really ruining his chances to be a good eater later on?
any advice would be appreciated.
