I've been giving Cecil solids (oatmeal cereal w/breastmilk) for almost two weeks. He tolerates it for the first five minutes or so, and then gives me a couple gags (totally normal, I know). I'm confused as to whether I should keep going with him or wait a little longer.
He doesn't flat-out refuse the spoon or the cereal, but he doesn't act like he really wants it either. He will open his mouth when the spoon gets near, though. I thought it was maybe just the bland oatmeal, so I gave him a teeny-tiny taste of pears (mixed in with the oatmeal and BM) the other day. He did the prerequisite lip smacking and seemed to like it.
So, my question: Should I keep going and introduce purees and see what he does? Or does it sound like he's not ready yet?
Background: when I started Geneva on solids, she ate it like a hungry little bird. She couldn't get enough. Ol' fat boy here seems to either take it or leave it. I'm of the mind to keep going - because, in the grand scheme of things, it's just practice, right?
