My dd is 6 months old and i've been told i have to start her on solids at least cereal because she needs iron. She does make swipes at my food and when she's watching me eat she moves her mouth. But she's not really interested in what i'm giving her (rice cereal, or banan I've tried). I've tried waiting until after an hour nursing her but by this time she's tired and wants to go to bed not eat. She absolutly wants none of it after nursing. The only time i got any into her was when i fed her before nursing but than she refused to nurse later and i was left skipping a nursing session and being very engorged by the next one. When i try to feed her i get as much out as i try and put in and sometimes she'll even clamp her mouth shut. On lllc they suggested baby let solids but my gp as advised against it, stating that it's risky behaviour. So I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions? Is it normal for them to spit out everything you put in there mouth? Do I just keep trying until she gets the hang of it??
