    Give him time. Hayden was the same way, he will grow out of it, just keep offering. Hayden we started solids at 6mo , I swear he didn't eat more than 15 bites maybe until 9mo lol. He just had no interest, so starting then he was on one meal a day and then at like 13-14mo finally got to 3 meals a day. As he got more mobile it was easier to eat real food, than to lay down and nurse. He is on the small side, but we are starting t think there is an underlying reason, not becase of that. But he's always been very healthy, no low iron, or low anything for that matter.

    How old is Lincoln? I wouldnt worry too much as milk should be his main food till he's a year old anyway.

    Like mo3 said, just keep offering him it and he'll come to it in time :D

    he's probably going through a growth spurt - it should be over soonish.

    Your supply will adjust!

    he's been better last couple of days, since we went to the beach with our friends and their baby and they fed Lincoln as well and he took it fine when he saw their baby ate the food,lol
    after that he got a bit better
    thanks for all replies and support
