Hmm. I was gonna say, if I have to feed Xan about 1 hr after he has a bottle. If I try sooner than that he is too full but if I try too much later than that he is too hungry to eat from the spoon cause it isn't fast enough..lol. It just takes a little time for them to get used to it.

Have you tried different spoons? Avent do a nice small spoon that might be suitable for small mouths.

I sometimes put a little food on Ross lips so he can taste what I'm giving him, that makes feeding easier if he's being difficult.

I spoon fed Ross gaviscon from 6 weeks, but he took to the spoon straight away so I don't know what else to suggest.

I fed some formula 1st and then I try giving her some from a spoon and she takes it when she 1st started though she screamed too and I just keep trying and soon enough she did it and now she loves her spoon my doctor said never give it to them in a bottle try a little spoon too. Emily only likes the small ones.
