He hated it. His pedi wanted his first food to be poultry so he had chicken. He spit everything out of his mouth and looked disgusted. But was fun to squish :)

I would try avocado or banana first, honestly. Meats come closer to 9 or 12 months for us.

That's what my son did when we started at 7 months. He really didn't start eating until 10 months.

Same for my first two. Third is not old enough yet to even try (only a month old lol), but I imagine it will be the same.

8 months is the EARLIEST I have ever heard of meats being recommended.. I cant believe a pedi would say 6 months and for the very first food!

My son is 8mo, he is on daycare, daycare lady says he eats very well, but when he is with me doesn't eat to much either purees or chopped veggies/fruits. He didn't go to daycare last Thursday and Friday  due sickness, and today they gave me a bad behavior report because he didn't want to eat and spit out everything they tried, also asked me if I did feed him at home.

I do feed him, but just if he is interested, I don't force him just offer it.

@turtlemom: Your 8 month old got a bad behavior report??  That is the funniest thing I have heard out of daycare in a long while:)  I can't imagine sending home behavior reports when I ran the infant nursery before my oldest was born.

OP I would probably have flipped out if chicken was my first food too. That is an odd thing to tell you to use first. What was the reasoning behind it? Avocado is much better to introduce first IMO.

The AAP now recommends meat as a first food. http://www.internalmedicinenews.com/fileadmin/content_pdf/ped/archive_pdf/vol43iss11/70296_main.pdf --- ignore the statement that breast milk is insufficient by itself after 6 months.
