Well Kira is 5.5 months old and i have started (and stopped) giving solids to her a few times over the last 2 weeks. The thing is no matter what i try, rice cereal, fruits, vegies, mashed potato & pumpkin (all homemade other then the rice cereal with no salts/ sugars or anything except the vegie or fruit pureed) but everytime without fail it causes her to be badly unsettled every night with sudden bursts of screaming and generally stirring and crying every few minutes!! When i stop the solids she goes back to normal. Yesterday i tried again and all she had all day was about 5 tea spoons of Farex rice cereal mixed with formula and she was up all night crying and screeching untill 6am this morning.
Has anyone gone through this or know what i can do?
She is intensly interested in everything i eat and constantly reaches for whatever im eating, copies my chewing motion when she watches me eat and seems unsatisfied now with just her bottle.

Rice cereal is HARD on their bellies and isn't good for them anyway. Wait a couple weeks and the try Avocado. Interest in your food is a reflex. True signs that she is ready is the ability to sit unassisted and to grab food and bring it to her mouth and chew it.
