So i baked a sweet potato yesterday (tasted good to me). then i pureed it and added breastmilk to thin. when i tried to feed it to Thea, she looked like a dog eating peanut butter - her tongue just kept going like she couldn't get it down. so i thinned it some more, but she still didn't eat much of it. she ate a few bites and she never got fussy about it. but she just acted very disinterested, looking the other way and only sometimes even opening her mouth.
i just gave her what she would eat and then stopped. i still paln on giving it to her the next few day b/c i know babies don't always like something right off the bat.
i have been nursing her for a few minutes before she eats her solids for the day - could she have just gotten filled up already? when do you give solids in regards to when they nurse or take formula?
Thanks to *Kiliki* for my pretty siggy!

my friend babysat last w/e and my son refused them too - a food he loves! turns out she served them cold, notwarmed. do you think it wasn't warm enough? if it was her first try, try them again this week or again in a couple. if she had something sweet the last time then they may not have beebn sweet enough? a thought.

i feed him solids first then bf in between and last. some days he prefers bmilk over solids all day.

I feed Katie her solids about 1 1/2 hours after her bottles for each meal...so far that is working for us, but every baby is different.
I think she just may have been full! she may LOVE them in another day or 2, They are funny that way !

did you strain it as well? She may not have liked the texture, or it might take her another try to get used to it. If you strain it to make it smoother, she might take to it better and then you can slowly skip that step (keep in mind you are losing a lot of the "goodness" when you strain, so you don't want to always do it, but maybe just to get her used to that particular food)

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!

You can also had cinnamon for a different taste. It is a natural spice. I add it to her sweet potatoes and carrots to spice things up sometimes...no pun intended!
Thank you Amber!

i usually feed Lily solids about an hour after breastfeeding. she did the same thing Thea did with the sweet potato, although i just gave it to her mashed up really well. but the 2nd day she seemed to like it much better, so i guess she adjusted to it. i gave it to her cold and she was fine with that.

i have spaced the solids more after nursing and that has seemed to help. yesterday she ate her sweet potatoes pretty well, but i can tell she really just likes the avacado better for now.
