    Anyone else have a baby that doesn't seem to like porridge or baby rice ? Been trying them for the last week or so and he just pulls a face and spits them out so today I tried some carrot and he eats that just fine ? Any suggestions ? Shall I keep trying the porridge?

    What age of a baby?

    If it's a younger baby it could be that they don't like any sort of solid food in their mouth so maybe wait a while and try again. My baby put food in his month from 4 months but didn't eat it until nearly 6 months.

    I started Savannah on solids at 5.5mths and I started her on potato with breast milk. Skipped rice, porridge and all the store bought stuff.

    He's just coming up to 5 months - shows most of the signs of being ready so I thought I'd give it a go! Just expected him to spit everything out though - but for some reason he keeps the carrots! Will try him every few days since he's waking loads at night now and has been for a few weeks so I don't think its a growth spurt.

    You could try some baby oatmeal instead :) and mix some fruits in with it

    Had some banana mushed up with a bit of formula today and that went down ok. Also tried the BLW approach and gave him a stick of banana to see what he'd do - went straight into his mouth and sucked it till it was mushy!! I'm only offering tastes of different things at the moment after his morning bottle just so he gets used to sitting at the table with us for breakfast in his high chair - but seems to be going ok so far - will give the porridge with fruit bits in it another go.

    Rebecca was the same, didnt like either but found out she likes the bannana cereal and the pear and apple one by cow and gate ( I think?) she has gone from spitting the rice out to actually opening her mouth for the other stuff now.

    I'm also trying the BLW

    The Cow & Gate Fruity Muesli was a hit with my wee one. He was never keen on the rice or porridge either when he started eating baby food!
