My 6.5 month old is not interested/not willing to eat solid foods. I am mystified. I EBFed her until 6 months exactly, when I began offering her "solid food" once or twice a day. Purees (doing earth's best, not homemade) sometimes mixed with oatmeal or rice cereal to vary the texture. So she's had a range of textures and flavors and she HATES it. Purses her lips closed and turns her head. She's a very agreeable baby so she doesn't quite cry, but I just know she's not into it.
She's 85% or higher in all her measurement categories, so not worried about gaining. Just want to introduce her to the world of food in a manner pleasant for both of us. As it is I am spending 1/2 hour once or twice a day battling to get one TBSP into her. With 2 older kids to care for, that's not easy or fun! I almost want to bag it but I clearly need to teach her to eat, right?
It's been 2 weeks now, which isn't that long in the spectrum but I don't remember this at all from my other ones and would welcome tips/experiences.
