    HI Tasha

    My twins were 6 weeks premmie. DS was showing signs of readiness at about 5mths corrected age, and the other, DD, was a month and a bit later. We had a false start initially, where DS went OK for a week, then it became painfully slow....sounds similar to what your baby is doing. I gave him a break for about 1 week, then it was like a switch had been flicked, and he was away. My GP was very critical that they hadn't been on solids earlier, but they simply were not ready and there was nothing that I could do to change that.

    Good luck!

    Corrected age, so six months corrected.
    In saying that, we went by when the kids were ready. A was 4 months actual, T 5 months actual & J 8 months actual.

    DS was born at 34 weeks, he's currently 4.5 months old and eating 2 meals a day.

    He eats one fruit and one veg per day and chews on toast, banana, avocado and steamed carrots.

    I just noticed that he was ready. It all depends on the child I think!

    Thanks girls! I ended up waiting a few weeks and then tried again and he loved it! His now on 3 meals a day at 7 months corrected and loves his food! He demands it lol! I went to the clinic yesterday and she scoffed at him being on 3 meals but he is more than happy to eat it all so if he wants it i don't see a problem giving it to him

    Default paed suggests go by real not corrected age

    Hi Tasha, Glad you finally got the solids thing going! My 7.5 months, that's 6m corrected, bub also has three solid meals a day, totalling around the 200ml mark. Some days a little more, some days a lot less.


    Just to clarify this, the ability to tolerate solids relies on them wanting to take it and their reflexes (extrusion or tongue pushing reflex) but their immune systems are as old as they are~real age, that is, so as long as they seem ready, 4months real age is fine. At least this is what the specialist paed said.

    Our little guy had reflux (yep, just come off the Losec and vomits less than when he was on it, after a vomity adjustment period), so I started him the day he turned 4m and he vaccuumed it down, and still does! Funny how they have such definite preferences for food at this early age!
