We have tried VERY thinned out cereal with formula, no. Cereal thinned with juice and water, nope! Sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots and apple sauce. No, no, no and NOPE! She clamps up and turns her head the minute she sees the spoon. I've tried giving her spoons to hold, making it a game and even just a tiny taste on her lips, she makes a horrible face or will even gag just licking her lips. She is the happiest baby, is reaching her milestones right on target, we just have this problem! She's a petite little one and only drinks the low end of what's required for the day with her formula and does sleep through the night. Anyone else going through this? She goes to the pedi tomorrow so I will obviously be bringing this up.
