I introduced solids to my little one after she was 6 months old in a very gradual manner. She was doing cereal for a couple of weeks and then started veggies and fruits, and even now at 8 months she is still only doing first foods.
When she was eating only breastmilk, she was a very healthy happy child - she would have gas every now and then, but it didn't seem to bother her. Ever since we started the solids, she has had one episode of diarrhaea, one episode of vomiting and several episodes of constipation. Any suggestions on what we can do to help her tender tummy?
She's also a very very picky eater - the little stinker has even learnt to laugh with her mouth closed when we feed her so that we won't be able to get the spoon in there! I am worried because folks say that by now baby should be eating all sorts of stuff and she is really not. What might be a good method to start her on more interesting foods like we eat? I mean with more interesting flavours and texture? We are terrified that anything but purees is going to be a choking hazard, but this is our first and we still don't know how to push the limits.
Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks!
