    Default 8 and a half month old suddenly not okay with solids

    My lovely DS has been having solids since he was around 5 months with us fully being into a routine with it at 6 months. We so far have not had issues with any foods.
    He started on purées, then progressed to lumpy foods, mashed foods and finger foods.
    Up until about a week ago he was fine with everything (no reactions, no tummy troubles, no vomiting)
    Since about a week ago he has been refusing solids after a little bit of food.
    Every other day it seems he is projectile vomiting his food across the room. It seems partially digested too.
    He doesn't seem to have any skin rashes or conditions and seems generally happy afterwards.
    It's extremely frustrating as I can tell he's hungry between bottles but just won't eat much of what I offer and the times he finally does have more than a couple spoonfuls he chucks it. My poor bubba.
    His father was allergic to almost every food under the sun as a kid but his allergies didn't start showing until he was just older than a year.
    DS has also been EXTREMELY gassy these last couple days.

    So I guess I am wondering has anyone else been through the same thing? What should I do?

    He is teething (feels like he has for the last 3 months).
    Could it also contribute to the spewing? There's been no fever

    I would suggest teething too. Ds' first teeth made him projectile vomit a lot.

    So the chucking has mostly stopped. I've been spoon feeding him silky purées and slowly trying to get him back onto lumpy food. He is usually okay with finger foods.
    He is still SUPER gassy. I just counted for the last 15 minutes he average 1 (loud and adult sounding) fart every 2 minutes. At least he thinks it's amusing and he's not troubled by it. I can't think of anything new in his diet.

    He has oat porridge, natural greek yogurt and fruit for breakfast,
    Veggies and rice cake for lunch,
    Dinner he has some mashed veggies and whatever we are having which will sometimes include bread, pasta, couscous etc

    Often a little bit of egg for breakfast, cheddar with lunch etc
    But I would say wheat every second or third day
