My daughter is 5 1/2 months old, and she's only had breast milk up to this point. I wanted to start introducing solid foods to her, so I mixed a little rice cereal with breask milk. When she tried it she got a sour look on her face (which I've heard all babies do when they try solid foods because it's so different) but she took several bites. When she indicated she was done (turned away from the spoon, started to fuss a little bit, etc.) we stopped and she was fine. About an hour later she got REALLY fussy and was crying pretty hard. The next day we tried the rice cereal again, and the same thing happened.
I don't know if I should stop trying to give her solid foods altogether for now, or try another first food instead of rice cereal, or what!! Any suggestions?
