We've been making our first attempts at weaning to solids over the last few weeks. Not a great record so far as his love affair with milk persists.
We've offered him carrot, cucumber, sweet-potato and just potato, but he wasn't having any of it. We've tried both baby and parent-led feeding, mashed and soft, mixed with milk and not, but whilst he's eaten it, he's not been enjoying himself. So far the only two things he'll actually eat without too much complaint other than milk are yogurt and plastic.
Plastic can really get him hyperventilating. He'll happily grab your sunglasses, water bottles or his spoon (providing there's no food on it), and happily go-to-town on it. He'll happily gorge himself on a piece of paper or a book, or even a stray piece of rubber or a table leg if he thinks someone might stop him.
We've started to make a little progress with porridge, with some of it getting swallowed [although most ending up in his hands, hair and on our clothes]. But at least it's a step forward.
