    Basically Elliot will not eat the stage 2 jars/lumpy foods....and i'm not sure what i'm supposed to do? He does not like the lumps in his mouth, pulls a funny face then tries to spit it out and refuses to even try eating it! I've ended up going back to the smooth foods just so i know he's eaten something.

    Also since his first tooth came through a few days ago, he has gone off fruit! He usually loves fruit and fruity youghurts/custard etc but now he pulls a face as if its sour/bitter and won't eat it!

    I'm not sure what's going on in his head at the moment!

    Help!!

    Elliot will eat them in his own time hun, dont worry.

    Brooke is 9 months old this week and has only just started eating stage two jars and more lumpy food.
    I carried on purreeing her food and giving her the stage 1 jars up until now. I tried once every two days with lumps but she wasn't having any of it.
    Give her scrambled eggs tho and she'd eat those.. wierd kid.
    Thought i would try her with one last Friday and hey presto! She's had lumps every ay since then.

    He'll eat them when he's good and ready hun :)

    I agree - dont worry, babies do it in their own time. 7 months is just guidance, there's plenty of time. Emms just gradually accepted more things as time went on, if he doesnt like it now, give it to him in a few weeks and see what he does. x
