NOt all babies are ready for solids at 6 months of age.

ITA with everything Carol said. Another thing to consider is that your LO may just not like purees. Kevin was King of Baby Food but Jason just never got into it. We were like you in that it was a chore to get him to eat a couple bites a day well past 6 months. Pretty soon after that, I discovered he liked table food just fine though. He had no teeth until 11 months but that didn't slow him down a bit. He liked bits of banana, rice, pasta, bits of chicken, ground beef, whatever was on my plate. We of course did introduce one food at a time but after we discovered that he preferred table food, it made our lives much easier.
