Hi ladies. My seven and a half month old really just does not like solids.
Over the last month and a half we have tried all the usual suspects. Avocado, apple, pear, sweet potato, banana (he liked the last two briefly!), greek yogurt, all the basics, and a little chicken and turkey. Made by me, from organic foods- nothing store bought. We have tried letting him feed himself with a spoon and mesh feeder (both of which he basically tried to "nurse".) - though he is not ready for small bits yet, as he gags and pukes and gets very upset, so we haven't *really* tried that.
I'm trying to keep it very mellow and low key. We don't try every day. But the ped said his gain has slowed, but it's not a worry as long as we can get him interested in some solids. He's 18.11.
He nurses around the clock. We cosleep and he snacks all night. He has a pretty bad upper lip tie we chose not to have cut. He -really- loves to nurse. So I'm wondering if it's just that he's not ready, or if we are doing something wrong... And if it's something I need to worry about. Is there a deadline? A "baby needs to be interested in solids by ____"?
Sorry... This turned into to a ramble. I'm just stumped!!
