    DD did the same thing at 6 months. We tried everyday. We started day 1 with avocado and she didnt really like it. On day two we tried banana and she loved it. As long as we stuck to sweeter foods at first she was totally happy. We didnt do the 7 day rule or whatever we just tried a bunch of different things.

    In the first week we did avocado, banana, watermelon, sweet potato and carrots. She still doesnt like avocado that much but likes everything else.

    Here's a link that offers more info regarding what and whne and how

    . The theory behind waiting a few days before introducing a new food is if there is a reaction you'll know which food did it... I recommend that method highly!

    We started DS (6mos) with avocado this week. The first time we gave him it he hated it also, his face looked the same as your LO . The next day I tried mixing it with a little EBM and he loved it.

    also it may take a few more trys then you think before they realize that they 'like' the food that you are giving them. it think i read 10-12 trys before totally ruling a food as 'not liked'... dd wasn't a big fan of anything green, well peas and green bean, she likes avo,... we mix a little apples in with the green stuff and she eats it right up. sometimes it takes a few trys.

    thanx everyone ... we gave it a rest today, i just gave him some dry mango to 'chew' on for the gums and he loved it!!

    will attempt avo again tomorrow - we're going to buy his highchair today, so then he'll be able to 'play' with it as well ...

    fun and games ...
