Re: Showing no interest
Don't sweat it. At 7 months, solids are just for fun, and for experimenting with new tastes. textures, and motor skills. They're not nutritionally necessary until somewhere around the first birthday. So if solids aren't fun right now, either put them aside or try offering them in a different way. Some babies really hate the spoon- and I should know, because mine was one! If she saw a spoon coming towards her, she would purse her lips and bat it away. We had no choice but to do baby-led solids (BLS)- that is, we put small pieces of soft food on her tray, and let her experiment with getting it into her mouth. If BLS sounds like an approach you'd like to try, I suggest starting with something like chunks of a very ripe pear or some very well-cooked chunks of sweet potato. You could also try soft shredded chicken, like the stuff that comes out of a soup. That was one of my daughter's early favorites. Your child may only make a mess at first, but eventually she will get something in her mouth!
