I am kind of at a point where I am not sure what to do. My daughter is 6 months old and is now starting solid foods, which is great because breast milk is not holding her over as long any more. The thing that I am having trouble with is that she doesn't like the spoon. She wont open her mouth to take the spoon at all. I have to tickle her or make her laugh to get her mouth open far enough to get the spoon in her mouth.
Is she not ready to be eating from a spoon? She doesn't take a bottle so I can't even mix milk with cereal and feed it that way. And she doesn't have the dexterity to finger feed herself yet. Any suggestions on what I should do?
