My little guy is 61/2 months and he has always fought being fed he's just an on tha go baby! But we started feeding him veggies and he thinks its the funniest thing to blow raspberries with food in his mouth every time you put the food in it comes right back out! Help! Any advice?

Omg my daughter who is he same age was just doing that today. I had to turn my face so I wouldn't laugh! Just keep going at it to see if it passes. We are doing all veggies first then will move on to the fruits. I dont want her to get that sweet taste the not eat the bland veggies! He is to damn cute btw!

I just put the spoon cupped over her mouth so it wouldn't go everywhere and kept feeding her. And made sure not to laugh or smile! Once they see you crack that smile its all over and it becomes a game.

That is ok and perfectly normal. It just means he isn't ready for solids yet :)

You can wait for awhile before offering again or you can offer actual chunks of food. I prefer to skip puréed food altogether and start out my babies on table food. Much healthier, and tastier too! But really, it is ok for him not to eat any solids yet. He'll be ready soon enough!

This.

We skip purees and cereals. No spoons for my baby!

Food is just for fun at this age anyway. Wait until he's ready.
