Now, at 6-7 months of age I've tried to introduce him to solids. He wont have any of it. Doesn't matter what it is. I think he has a phobia of food in general. Rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots....he gags on them all. The minute a miniscule amount of food touches his lips he dramatically gags, and spits up (mostly saliva, not having any food at this point). At first it was funny, his facial expressions, but now at almost 10 months of age, it's frustrating. He takes the spoon, pulls the food off, then sticks the empty spoon in his mouth. I've tried finger food too...small cut up pieces of carrot, and same thing.
Though I haven't tried fruit yet, because I'm afraid he'll grow accustomed to sweeter things and refuse veggies in the future...
Is that thought unfounded? I hear mixed views...
He DOES gnaw on a cold carrot sometimes but that's about it.
Another issue, and months ago I would not have believed this (lol), but now my son refuses any bottle! lol how ironic! basically anything BUT my breast! He won't even touch a bottle, even when I was gone for 6 hours and he must have been hungry.
