Our kids are Monsters! They both have massive appetites, and our daughter will pretty much eat anything in sight. Whether its on a plate, a table or even the floor, if she spots food she will put it in her mouth. She had a very easy transition from breast milk to solid foods, and it was never an issue.
The same cannot be said of our son. He is a big boy for five months, weighing in at a healthy 18lbs, and can chug milk with the best of them. However, now that he is transitioning to real food, we have run into a problem. This kid hates everything we have tried to give him, and immediately spits it out all over the place. We have tried rice cereal, apple sauce, puréed bananas, and so forth. Nothing seems to be to his liking.
I’m curious if it’s just the texture he needs to get use to or he hates the taste of all these wonderful treats. He drinks way too much milk and needs to get some more food into his diet. We have been trying for a couple of weeks with no success and we are running out of tricks to try.
My questions to the great dads are:
Do you think it is the texture or the taste he doesn’t like?
Did anyone else go through a period like this?
Do you have any suggestions to get him to eat?
