My son is refusing solids again, so I pretty much gave up. I know it's not a NEED until he's a year old. But it worries me because his weight is low (he's 6 months, 15.5lbs and 27.5in). He refuses a spoon. He also refuses a bottle or sippy so I can't supplement with formula or anything.
However, he wants table food. I have tried giving him taste of a few things, and he likes them. So I made some mashed veggies....and then he refused them!!!
I am not sure what to do. He's so darn skinny and his ped isn't concerned....yet. I was ok until she said "yet" at his appointment. Granted his daddy is 6'6" and barely 200lbs, so on one side I want to think he's just taking after my husband. On the other, I see these 3/4 month old babies who weigh just as much, if not MORE, and are also breastfed!
Please, any help at all?
