TW- throwing up stage 2 food


Hi all,
Hope you have some advice. My twin boys are 7 and a half months old and we have been weaning them since just before they turned 6 months (as per GP advice). I would like to get to stage 2 food now that is textured or mashed. But both boys seem to hate it and Sebastian always throws up! I usually give milk before their solids lunch cause Sebastian is a bad eater and will otherwise leave most of his bottle if not even all of it. I tried giving mashed food again today and he threw up a good bit of the milk after the first spoonful. What should I do?
I tried finger foods btw. I gave them banana pieces and carrot sticks and even baby biscuits (cookies) but apart from licking it for a bit both boys just dropped them after a moment.
Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated.

It is homemade, or from a pouch or jar? I find that Jack will eat up homemade and the pouches just fine, but can't stand the jarred stage 2 food. I think it is because it is more lumpy rather than textured.

In any case, I think persistence is the only thing that will work. Same with finger foods - they just have to keep practicing!

I usually offer Jack a bottle at least an hour before his lunch - he doesn't really drink much of it though as he is still full from breakfast. at 7 months it is okay for them to start reducing milk.

Thank you for your answer and advice
The food is from pouches. We like Ella's Kitchen and Plum and I had hoped they would like the stage 2 food from that range too. I did try one jar from Cow and Gate but as you said I saw it was lumpy so I am not surprised that that didn't work so well.
The problem with reducing the milk with Sebastian is that really he only has four bottles a day as it is cause he rarely will take more than half his bottle for breakfast and usually leaves half of his bed time bottle too, even though we often resort to dreamfeeding it to him once he is half asleep.
Do you think he will eventually stop vomiting if I persist with stage 2 food? He doesn't seem to like it much and neither really does Dominic. He usually clamps his mouth shut after the first 2 small bites. But at least he doesn't throw up.

Jack only has 4 bottles a day -- and usually only drinks 3-4oz of his mid morning. We'll be dropping that one soon, I think. At this stage they only need 18-21oz a day.

It's so hard isn't it... I have been lucky with Jack but I remember Emma took ages to get used to stage 2. I just continued to offer it and eventually she ate it. It is no fun watching your child vomit, that's for sure.

Good luck, I'm sure they will get there soon.

I'm going at it from a stage 1.5 view... so I've made up a batch of homemade stuff that's more lightly blended/mashed than the previous stuff I've made was as an intermediate step between the very very smooth purees and the stage 2 stuff with things like whole peas in. I could see some intermediate step being the next big marketing whizz.
