Your baby son is probably still teething. His main source of nutrition now is still his milk.As long as he is gaining weight there is no need for concern.He seems to like his cereal and will start to eat other food when his teeth cause him less discomfort. All his food should be very finely mashed or pureed. Only offer him one new vegatable at a time.
