How to Introduce Solids?

I was told to only introduce a new solid every 5-7 days, but son seems bored with his peas after three days. Should I keep feeding him peas for the next 2-3 days or should skip solids for a day, or should I introduce a new food?

  • as long as you see he is not having a reaction, give him something different. just wait a couple days between new foods

  • i was always told to wait for about 3 days.

  • I introduced a new one every 3 days. I'm pretty sure 3 days is enough to tell if they're going to have a reaction, especially if they have it everyday.

  • Thanks it should get easier once he has more than one in the rotation.

  • I wasnt ever told an amount of days just one a day. So I would say you could give him something new.
