Caleb tried sweet potato today and DID NOT like it one bit. He only took a couple bites and just spit out each one. Then, I tried some rice cereal afterward since he's been eating that and loves it, but he didn't seem to want that either. I think he is on a food strike. Maybe I fed it to him too soon after being nursed, (1 hr and 15 min)?
I don't know when is the best time to offer solids. I've read 2 different ways, and not sure which one is best. Dr. Sears says to feed in between nursing sessions, since the iron absorbtion can be hindered by the breastmilk but I make the food with breastmilk so still not sure on that one. And then I have a book, Super Baby Food, that says to nurse on one side, offer food, then finish with the other side. Maybe I should try that way next and see. I worry about overfeeding if I do it in between sessions, and I want to make sure he is still getting most of his calories and nutrition from the breast milk.
