My DS2 is 7 month old and on recommendation from the ECHN has been on solids since 5 1/2 months however he has never really taken to it. At the moment I am offering breke and 5pm dinner and it takes a lot of coaxing for him to eat it. He has shown no interest in it, keeping mouth shut and turning head away when approaching with spoon.
I have tried giving him finger foods of watermelon, pasta, brocoli he just picks them up and plays with them. He doesnt like the dummy net things either.
My other concern is he is now refusing breast. He feeds at 3am, refuses to feed at 7am, bit of an effort and usually only a quick feed at 11am, then gets a bit better by arvo and bed feed.
Has anyone else expereienced this? The ECHN is concerned about his weight gain, have taken him to Dr to rule out urinary tract infection.
May be a phase, he has no teeth and his gums are showing no signs of any coming through but is becoming quite stressful for us both
