This is a common problem. Many babies don't like coarse food, so you really have to mash his foos up so that it is very fine. Try that. Don't give him his milk first as that will fill him up.I am sure that our regular forum members will also have some advice for you.

I suggest mixing a little bit of veg / fruit with the porridge so he can slowly get used to the taste, gradually increase the amount of veg, and decrease the amount of porridge ...

Hope that helps a bit!

Good luck
