My son has been on solids for about 3 weeks now. We started off with one meal a day for a few days but that wasn't working so we went to two of rice cereal mixed with a little fruit, as he refused to eat it plain. He loves it like this, it doesn't matter what fruit its mixed with he'll eat it.
Last week we tried pumpkin which he scoffed down for the first four days then refused it, we tried potatoes ate a little, gagged on it threw it up then refused it too. We tried sweet potatoe today and he didn't take to that either just sat it in his mouth or spat it out.
I want him to get established on veggies before introducing fruits but so far its not working. I've taken to giving him veggies at lunch and cereal for tea to help him through the night (but we also have sleeping issues).
I don't want to give him rice cereal for both feeds as this made him slightly constipated and then we had problems with doing number 2, more sleepless nights.
Any one with any ideas at all, I'll try anything as I'm at my wits end.
