    I wasnt sure if I should give him 3 meals a day when he is not eating any of it.

    When you say he won't eat it.... does he stick his tongue out when you feed him and push it all out. Or does he just not like the food you offer?

    As in I mostly cant even get it into his mouth, he either turns away or grabs the spoon & plays with it - if he puts it in his mouth himself & gets any of the food he spits it out. He only very occasionally swallows a tiny tiny bit.

    Honestly this is just the early stages of tasting. Let him play with the spoon. .. And taste bits here and and there. He doesn't need to eat a certain amount. If you feel confident give him foods he can stick in it and suck off. Like a raw carrot stick. This is big enough he can't bite it. .. Or chew it... But it provides a taste. He can dip it in the puree and suck it off. There's lots of food like that you can try.
    You need to stop thinking that he needs to eat some. . He just needs to explore.
    Also those rusks can be good to suck on. He has control of that. Those babymumum crackers. And they are great for spreading avocado or dips or puree on for tastes.

    Dinner puree up some sweet potato, it has a nicer flavour than just potato. I usually steam it then puree it with a bit of water from the saucepan.

    Breakfast I use nestle cerelac with cooled boiled water and some apples or pears mixed in.

    He'll take a bit to get used to the textures and flavours but he will get there. He may even sleep and settle better with something more in his belly.

    At 7 months I would be offering real meals and not just fruit. At least 20% protein (meat/lentils) for lunch and dinner

    Eg
    brekky: baby porridge wih purée pear mixed in
    Lunch: beef casserole and rice (purée if needed or just finely diced) followed by purée pear for dessert
    Dinner: grated cheese to eat with fingers, chicken pasta bake (purée if needed) followed by custard

    Make sure there is at least an hour between a milk feed and when you offer solids (so bub is hungry enough).

    Ok thanks for the great ideas, ill try some.

    So VicPark, should I be giving solids after a breatfeed? The child health nurse I spoke to earlier this week said to give solids first then a breastfeed.

    God this is confusing. I wish the so-called professionals could be consistent & tell us the same thing, not 100 different things......
