Post subject: another weanin question...
I started giving connor a bit of baby rice just over a week ago wen he hit 6 months, his tongue thrust reflex was still quite strong, but now seems to be getting a bit better, but feedin him is such hard work, he doesnt seem to like anything and spits everythin out, and just seems to be getting frustrated! Should i leave him a bit longer n try again in a couple of weeks? He only having 1 "meal" a day n so far only tried baby rice, carrot n banana, he was 6 weeks early so didnt know if this made any difference or not? Even tho hv sed not to wait til corrected 6 months, is it just connor bein a pain in the bm? N hopefully grow out of it quite quickly? Xxx

I don't think he'll be spitting it out because he doesnt like it. Most likely he's just spitting it out coz he isnt used to it and its an odd consistency to him. I would persevere, just stick with a few spoonfuls a day for the moment until he takes to it xx

Laura, try mixing some of his milk with whatever your giving him, it will taste more familiar.

The other thing I was told is that they really really do need proper weaning spoons, and the trick for the first few times is to sort of wipe their top lip with it, if you get what I mean.

I tried A;ex for the first time today he seemed to like butternut squash we trying pear tomorrow. lol

yeah Laura, after him keep taking 56+ oz's a day thought he must be flippen hungry, as it was an immediate jump of arpund 15 oz a day.

Only started him weaning today tho, even tho HV said I should start the other week Embarassed Rolling Eyes he's 4 months today, so still v young to be weaning.
