Well I had started my son on solids at five months, I was adament about waiting until six but he was grabbing food out of my hands and seemed SO EXCITED about it and ready! We tried avacado and he gobbled it up, LOVED it. So we did that for 4 days and yesterday tried sweet potato. He HATED it. We tried two bites and he made the funniest face and spit it out. So we decided to try a little banana and he hated that, too. Looked like he was gagging and I thought all kids loved banana. I was wondering if I should try something bland, like oatmeal, or if I should just wait until later when he's sitting up and capable of self-feeding, like I had originally planned? If I do oatmeal, how do you all do that? The quick regular oats? Do you do anything special to it? Does it sound like he isn't actually ready and I was misreading his interest? You guys are great, thanks in advance.
