Okay. I really know very little about feeding solids. I have read many of the links suggested on other threads and things but I wanted some clarification. My lo just turned 6 months old. I tried to give her some rice cereal mixed with breast milk and she thought it was nasty. She just gagged on it and made nasty faces. I then tried a mashed up bannana a couple of days later. She made a gagging face for this as well. I think that this means she is not ready yet for solids. She sits up well on her own and always wants my food but when I acctually let her try something she is not happy. So I am okay with waiting... Bf is easy I live in India and people start babies on solids here early so many of the ladies think I just don't know how to care for her correctly. I try to show them that she is 17 pounds and growing daily so there is no need to worry. The ladies will always try to feed her something because they just do that here. Anyways, I guess this is a long post to simply ask if waiting is okay...Thanks for your time.
