Not interested in solids
Posted 01 September 2012 - 10:21 PM
I'm "feeding" him once a day with rice cereal. Try for 30 mins and then give up (or until he starts screeching ).
Tossing up if I should increase to twice a day in the hope he'll get interested, or change to something else like mashed carrot...(rice cereal is kind of blah).
I'm not too concerned since he's quite a chunky fella for his age and loves the boob. But just after some suggestions as I would like to get things moving along. Or should I just leave it altogether for a week or two?

Oh, and I offered rice cereal to her once, she refused, then I tasted it myself and promptly threw the packet out!

That was my motto when my 1st son was trying solids. Milk is their main food source before 1.
I would do what others have suggested & trying different flavors & textures

Does he eat with you all? Having him sitting at one meal with you per day just seeing stuff would be enough, even if none of it goes down. If he's not showing any interest and is happy with milk then he's obviously not starving!
We started with a few purees. There is a great way of doing purees where you grate the carrot/pumpkin/sweet potato, then soften in a saucepan with a bit of butter, then pop a lid on and cook on very low for only about 15 minutes, no water. The taste is sensational and you're not losing any flavour or nutrients into cooking water. Then you can just mash/blend until smooth - if they don't mind chunks you can just stir it through with a spoon.
We'd make a whole heap and use it ourselves to put through risottos or pastas and Eddie would just have some puree, although we actually did mostly finger food after the first few weeks.
FWIW he showed utterly no interest until bang on 6 months, and then he was all systems go - they all have a different point when that happens so don't stress if it isn't now for your DS.

She never liked rusks, we had much more success with mum mums (rice rusks that just disolve). She prefered rice ceral with fruit mixed in as long as it was completely smooth, any lumps and she's point blank refuse it
