Mum4nay have you tried the baby led weaning approach? Sorry I'm not much of an expert on it but it's basically (from what I understand) letting them determine what they eat and how much, and mainly focuses on finger food. I appreciate at 6 months he seems still so little but apparently it can really work at that age, particularly with steamed food and other things they can manage to handle. There's a great thread on it on this forum. Lucy has never let me or anyone else feed her with a spoon so we had to can solids until she was 9 months and I figured this out. Once she was on finger food she never looked back.
