You should be reducing your son's milk intake at his age. He is drinking an lot of milk and runs the risk of developing an iron deficiency.Offer him his solids first and try and find foods that he seems to like.Add one food at a time. Don't make a fuss if he does'nt eat justt be as patient as possible and don't try and force him to eat. Cut his milk intake to 3 bottles a day now.
