I'm not saying there is a way to get your bub to eat solids. Bub may have already made up bubs mind in which case night feedings may be needed for the near future - that's not a failure in any way shape or form.. (pity bub doesn't take a bottle otherwise hubby could have helped).

Maybe they could be a separate thread about hints and tips for trying to help introduce solids?
I have to say the DR sears article rose posted has a few good points. You have to keep it fun and (as parents) watch your facial expressions otherwise bub can be turned off.
Op said she breastfeeds and baby doesn't take a bottle, so no way of knowing the volume she's getting. My DS was a super efficient feeder from a few weeks old, rarely took longer than 5 mins on either boob so to me, I wouldn't feel confident lessening his time on the breast. But I also feel breastmilk is far more important that him swallowing some baby cereal so was cautious about wasting his nutrients.
