I just had our 6 month check up yesterday and the Dr said I should be feeding him baby food twice a day by now and rice cereal at least once per day by now. But he doesn't want anything to do with any of it. It literally makes him gag and sometimes throw up. I have been breastfeeding and have had plenty of milk to satisfy him until the last few weeks. He has been wanting to eat constantly and has been waking up about every hour at night eating so I know he needs the extra calories from baby food. Any suggestions on how to get him to eat baby food?

Thank you I will try that. How long did it take to get your baby to start liking the baby food?
