My son is 6 1/2 months old and hates to eat solids. It has been about 3 weeks and things are not getting better. I started with organic brown rice, then tried heinz rice cereal, then barley with very little success. So out of desperation I tried putting some fruit in it, like banana, but that didn't help. So then I thought, maybe he just doesn't like the texture of the cereal so I decided to give him some vegtables. I pureed some sweet potato but still no luck! I havn't tried meats yet, I guess I will give it a shot. I have given him the same food for about 3 days in a row (so he could give it a chance and get used to it and to check for allergies). i just don't know what to do! Is it common to have this kind of reaction, especially for so long? He needs to learn to eat and like food eventually, he can't just drink milk forever! I find it so shocking that he isn't ambitous to eat, becuase he is such a good milk eater and a very big child. I need some suggestions or encouragement, I am getting so frustrated. Thanks for any friendly suggestions!
