its like that , coz they are too used to milk liaozz...
the semi-solids is to introduce and make known to them that "There are other foods on earth besides MILK!!!"
my boy did not eat much also.....and he spitted out the porridge i cooked for him...wasted...
in my experience, babies will prefer "sweet" stuff more.
good puree to try are:
2) spinach (baby spinach are preferred)
7) sweet potato (but those purple color ones, small one from japan, my boy was allergic to it, maybe due to the purple coloring, best to avoid those. Get those orange ones will be safer)
8) egg yolk (be careful coz will choke easily coz its dry, but my boy loves it a lot, will finish whole yolk)
9) Tomatoes - remove the pulp (those sticky part w seeds ), peel off outer skin, just give the 'meat'...
10) beancurd - i have not tried be4 but its an alternative source of protein other then egg yolk.
the nurses that time suggested that we intro puree from each food groups.
eg1 : potato (carbo) + spinach (vit + minerals) + egg yolk (proteins)
or you can give puree with baby cereal.
start with small amounts (one to two tablespoons) (eg, half a potato, 5 leaves of spinach, one egg yolk, half a slice of papaya etc.)
when cutting the spinach, remove the middle vein, fold half and cut away the middle vein coz hard to digest, then chop up until like mashed parsley. also if you spot tiny food pieces in his stools means you have not mashed up enough and canx digest...so observe these clues.
my boy loves to eat pumpkin, papaya, bananas and egg yolk. They hate vegetables. But he LOVES tomatoes.....he can finish whole tomato (small one)
bananas canx give too often coz will have phelgms easily
papaya also, alternate few days coz of vita A, will cause skin to be yellow
pumpkin can only give once a week
apple can give everyday
