My 6mo son has no interest in soft foods. Any recommendations to make him want to try? Thanks in advance!

    What did your doctor say . ? My first son I feed him a little . but mostly was on milk until 1 year old . Even my 2nd son was milk only until 1 . Ask your doctor . Because my 3rd . My daughter ate up food at 6 months even solids . Like soft fries and things .

    Let him play and explore and get messy with the food (pro tip: do this with just a diaper on for easy clean up). At this age it’s not really about nutrition as they are still getting most all nutrition from breastmilk/formula but just getting comfortable with the new tastes and textures.

    I found with my son that small shell pasta with steamed broccoli was his first favorites. Also sweet potatoes with a sprinkle of cinnamon

    Keep trying different veggies and fruits. And just mix in some of your milk so that the taste is a bit familiar for him and hopefully he will take to the food.

    Six months can still be a little early. Research the food readiness signs and look into doing baby led weaning instead of typical soft/mushy spoon fed baby food. And if baby isn't ready yet remember food before one is just for fun.
