    Right now it is just a learning process for your baby, and one day he will actually eat the food without spitting it out. One reason for the spitting or leaking out of his mouth is because he may not be ready yet. He is only 5 months, and most babies are not ready until after at least 6 months. You could try stopping solids (your breastmilk is all he really needs!) and try again in a few weeks!

    Good luck!
