oh supplements! iron, vit D, cause fortified baby cereal is the bomb and has solved all the malnutrition and food intolerance issues in the world.
i hear the same thing- we just did our 6 month visit(i think it was on their record as our 4 month, but he was 5 months b/c of scheduling stuff) and the conversation went something like this-
"Is he eating solids yet?"
"No, I let him play w/ the foods, and he sticks them in his mouth, but doesn't swallow. I figure the gag reflex will pass soon."
"Hm. So how do you plan on introducing solid foods?"
"I will keep giving him appropriate soft or dissolving finger foods, and someday he'll go from playing with the food to actually eating it. Then he will be eating solids!"
"You've done this before haven't you?"
"Um, yeah. All the rest eat very well, love a diversity of foods, and have no food intolerances. So it seems to work for us."
"Sounds good. Since you're not vaxxing on schedule, do you want to come in later instead of at the next visit? The visits are really around the vaccine schedule."
"Sure, can I bring him in at a year?"
"How about 8 months?"
I'm planning on shifting it to a year. Somehow. we're just not that exciting. We went to Cape Cod yesterday, does sand count as a first solid food? Cause he swallowed a LOT of that stuff!!!
