So my son was 6 months on the 5th. We started baby food roughly 2 weeks ago. Started with cereal which my baby didn't seemed to thrilled with and then also have been doing those 2 pack plastic containers of baby food. We'll split one container to two or three meals depending how much my son will eat. He doesn't seem like he really likes it. We've only done a couple different veggies (since they say wait 3 days to a week before doing a new food). He doesn't seem to like them much at all and this momma doesn't really know what I'm doing wrong. I read some where that you should nurse first then offer food, so I've been doing that. I've also been feeding him later in the day since I usually will feed him just in a diaper or just a shirt and change him right after since he's always dirty. Should I try feeding him earlier and not so close to bed time? I just want this to be enjoyable for both of us and right now it isn't really. :/ So any suggestions or tips would be helpful.
Also my son just got his two bottom teeth this week and he seems like he wants to nurse more. You think it's a comfort thing or a growth spurt? I'll even offer food after a late afternoon nap and get the same effect.
