    Default Thank u all!!!

    I must admit, I was thinking that something was wrong with my little man. He is 5 mos and a little over 17lbs, and CUTE as he can be I must add . Anyhow, my pediatrician told me to give him solids at his 4 month appointment, and I have trying to and he DOES NOT like it!!! He gets formula in the day (I had the hardest time pumping at work, too much traveling and not enough milk), and bm at night. I have tried rice cereal, apples, & bananas (gerber 1st foods) and he coughs, gags, and turns away!! But thanks to all of you wonderful moms who shares ur experience, I know that this is NORMAL . I will leave my son alone, and stop trying to force him to eat solids. I will wait until he starts to grab at our foods, and let him try them out then. Again, THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!! I can sleep at night.

    Was your ped thinking he weighed too little? my daughter just turned a year two days ago, and she weighs about 18 lbs. Diverse babies.

    Sounds like a great weight. I don't know what Dr's are thinking or what planet they went to school at sometimes.
