My daughter is 6 months old, born at 25 weeks. Her pediatrician is really wanting us to start pushing more solid foods (cereal, vegetables). The neonatalogist at the clinic held by the NICU said she would still be too young developmentally (adjusted age is about 2 and a half months) to be able to eat from a spoon. We've been trying cereal a couple times a week but she looses interest very quickly and tries to eat the spoon like a bottle or licks the cereal off. With the conflict information from her doctors, I don't know if we should try harder to get her to eat or hold off a few more weeks. Did anyone else run into this problem? When did you start trying solid foods?
