baby not into solids...what to do?
DD is 6 months old. I have been trying & trying solids on Tessa. Sweet potatoes, pears, rice cereal...she is not enthusiastic about any of them. I guess she cries the least on cereal but she's not exactly gobbling it down either. I fight to get her to take a tablespoon of cereal, and most of that ends up on her face. Ped. says she needs the calories from cereal because she is very low on the weight bracket (2%) (she has always been low on the weight bracket, since birth so I'm not being pushed to supplement with formula), but she just does not seem to like solids and only wants the boob. How long did it take before your LO took to solids? Do I just put it aside and try again in a week or two? It breaks my heart to have feeding sessions end up with her whimpering and on the verge of tears. Is she just not ready for solids yet?
I am trying to feed her when she wakes after her morning nap (always she's in a great mood after napping), and usually she won't be too hungry at that point (about an hour away from her next feed). I just don't know what else to do?
