We introduced solids to DS at around 5 months old <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> . He was doing GREAT with them for 6 weeks - no reactions, loved everything, leaned forward to take them, etc. In the last two weeks, every time I try to feed him, he will simply not open his mouth - even if it's something he previously loved. If I give him a teething biscuit or some fruit in the baby safe feeder, he really enjoys that. Is this just him being independent (he also rejected the bottle for 6 weeks, and then jsut as quickly decided he'd take it again) and wanting to feed himself, or should I be concerned? I was really hoping he'd be getting at least some solids while he was at daycare (starting next week).

Maybe he just doesn't want it right now. A squishy food strike? If he can chew food, you can let him feed himself little pieces of soft foods. I don't think you need to worry about it, since he's still eating. You can send food that he'll eat to daycare, it doesn't have to be "baby food."<br><br>
You could send<br>
* pieces of almost overripe banana<br>
* teething biscuits<br>
* your baby safe feeder
