firstly happy new year, hope you all had a good one! So John is 13 weeks old and at the moment suffering from a 'virus'. It began as that cold before xmas and has developed into sickness and diarrhoea. Been doctors and having to collect a poo sample. Anyways he's now showing signs of wanting to try food. If you have it near him he'll try and grab it and likes to suck fingers if you've had food anywhere near them (yet still totally refusing the bottle - which at mo is fine as doc says breast milk cleanest and safest for him). He's also still teething, so bless he's in tears one minute and bouncy the next and asleep inbetween. Back to the point, my OHs family is trying to insist we try him on food, even my OHs mum who's normally very supportive of letting us do things our own way is saying 'it wouldn't do any harm to start letting him taste things.' In fairness if he wasn't quite so poorly at the moment we might let him taste little things, but that's just it - taste, not eat. My OH won't let his granny babysit because he's convinced she'll feed John. I think he might be right. we've had to take to ignoring her when she speaks because she's always giving advice. Also as soon as she knew we were letting him try anything at all she'd be trying to feed him. When did you all let your LOs try food and what was it? x
