Is this common?
My last bub took to solids and eating off a spoon instantly. No probs at all.
This baby always watches us eat and reaches out for our food - and now it's her turn.... she doesn't seem at all interested. She won't open her mouth for the spoon and if I sneak a bit in she screws up her face - and on day 3 she cried as soon as she saw the bowl and spoon coming her way. So I put it away and left it for the day.
It's only been about four days... and so far I've only offered rice cereal mixed with b/milk.
I'm going to try a different food tomorrow to see if it's a taste thing.
I just didn't anticipate such a lack of interest.
And for weeks now she's been waking and feeding every couple of hours or more each night -- so I thought she was getting hungrier as she got older... I'm pretty desperate for a better nights sleep.
Am a bit down about it all... mainly from lack of sleep.
I should also mention she is one month premmie. Would this have something to do with it? I'm thinking not because some people start solids at four months.
Do babies just sometimes take longer to get the hang of the whole solids thing?
