Solid food

I started solid for my little one. She’s 6mo, i gave her fruit purée and cerelac. I tried giving porridge but seems like she doesn’t like it. Cuz its tasteless. Tried adding meat too.. doesn’t work! Any tips mummies? First time mummy here ?

At 6 months, I wouldn’t add meat or too chunky textures like porridge yet. Continue with the purees then gradually introduce chunkier textures. Babies shouldn’t take salt anyway so their cereals/porridge is usually bland

I see. That probably means she’s not ready for porridge yet. Go with puree for now?

Abit too early to start with meat... How much puree or cereal did you give her? Normal for her to reject baby food when it was first introduced. Solid food is something so new and unfamiliar to babies, it can take a while for them to get used to the new texture in their mouth.

I use meat as a base for the “sweet taste” i gave puree or cereal once a day..
