My son is 6 months old. My home nurse said he should be having solids now. So ive been trying to feed him. But he heaves at every spoonful of food. And throws up anything that got down. Ive tried buying 4 and 6 month old foods and even naking my own. But he always heaves and throws it up. I dont know what to do.. Could this be a medical problem? Or am i doing something wrong?
Another alternative is to think about seeing your early childhood nurse and seeing if a referral to a speech pathologist would be necessary. Although this sounds a little premature at this stage, the issue with offering solids is that timing is the key to success and by seven months we really want to see babies accepting solids. Deferring it past this “window of time” can influence a delay in the baby’s interest and it makes it very difficult then for them to transition towards eating more lumpy and textured foods.
Very rarely, there is an issue with the baby being able to swallow properly but I would think that unless there has been concerns with him to date, this is highly unlikely.
Cheers and hope these ideas help.
