Many babies of this age do not like coarse foods to eat. Let him have only his bottle for a day or two then start all over with solids but make sure that you only offer him very finely pureed foods.Start off with a rice cereal, then introduce pumpkin and butternut, then fruit such as apple and pear. Gradually add to the foods he is eating. Try to find out the foods he prefers. Always offer him his solid foods before giving him his bottle.
