  • If he was able to eat it and hasn't had any problems, then he's probably ready.

  • If he ate it yes. He was probably making faces because of the texture.

  • It takes sometime to get them to eat more of anything. Just keep trying if he is swallowing well then you have no problem just watch out for allergies as you try him on stuff. Always stick to one thing for about a week and see if he reacts to it. Good luck.
