My DS is 7.5 months old, 5.5 corrected for being two months prem. I have been trying Purees since he was 5 months, suggested by our paed. He is fed EBM otherwise. Unfortunately he hates it! I'm still trying only once a day, one ice cube savoury and sweet. He gaga easily and vomits even on milk so the Purees are thin.
basically he makes a face and spits everything out. Tried pumpkin, carrot, sweet potato, chicken, zucchini, pear, Apple and peach. He seems to love holding the spoon himself but gets it everywhere, I doubt much goes down! Thought about BLW as he seems to like being independent, he loved a piece of watermelon (held by me, too slippery) but the next day I think he got a piece off, gagged and vomited all his milk. So I'm worried he won't cope with pieces of fruit and veg.
Would love any ideas, We are getting nowhere at the moment!
