G day Everyone!
I am a first time mum of a nearly 7 month old boy. We have been trying to use baby led weaning to start him on solids but it dosn't seem to be going so well. He hardly gets anything down, we end up in a massive mess, and he is still gags on bits which really stresses us out. Thats the most worrying bit. So much so that we tried to spoon feed him at which point he just turns his head and closes his mouth.
Any advice? I try to feed him solids whenever I get something to eat, so about 5 times a day. (I know I have a diet starting monday!) He loves to grab the food and put it in his mouth and all over himself. I try soilds usually about 20mins after a breastfeed.
Also what are your fav things to give? And do you give your kids toast? or meat?
Thankyou so much!
