What to do if baby rejects food?
Getting the hang of solid food may take some weeks before your baby actually enjoys eating from the bowl. Some babies may take a lot of time to adjust to eating which involves taking food from the spoon, chewing and swallowing (the tongue thrust reflex has to disappear, and it usually does after the 4 th month). You on your part should not give up and try again on another day. Key issue is you have to be relaxed and be prepared to give your baby time to adjust to this change. Also, sometimes your baby may prefer something else to baby rice; try giving him pureed fruit or vegetable.
