I have a 7 and a half month old. we started on solids about 7 weeks ago. He's in the 95 percile for height so didn't want to delay it. Anyway we had about a week over xmas when he really started to get into it, but the rest of the time every feeding is a drama. He cries as soon as I put him in the seat (tried different chair but no improvement) and then whines and keeps his mouth tightly closed. I manage to get a few spoonfuls in with games and sticking silly toys on my head to distract him, but it only works for a few minutes. Lately, he's even stopped eating the few things he did seem to like, apples and pears. It just seems to be another daily drama to add on to the nap problems (screams head off eveytime we put him down...). I'm trying to be patient but really feel we not getting anywhere. Has anyone got any advice, or at least experienced a similar problem?
