I am new to this board. I have a 6 mo DD who is EBF.
I am starting to introduce solids and she is not liking them at all! I started with oatmeal and when that was not a hit (after about 2 weeks), I have slowly started trying to introduce veggies/fruit. I don;t know if it is a texture thing or what, but she is NOT having it. I added breast milk to them, I made them slightly thicker... Nothing seems to make her want them.
I am not concerned about weight or anything and am not really in a rush since I do plan to nurse as long as she wants to, but I do want to start introducing some solids.
Just wondering if anyone had any advice... Should I stop all together and wait a few weeks? Or keep trying slowly? We;ve been doing it for about 4 weeks now. I am making my own baby food.
Her weight gain is fine (90th percentile!) and she is otherwise happy/healthy. She seems really interested in our food (watching us eat, trying to grab things off our plates, holding her bottle when the babysitter is here and I am working)...
Any thoughts/insight appreciated!!
