  • Best Answer
When introducing complementary feeding you need to be patient and do it
gradually. Don't expect the baby to be finishing full bowls immediately
you start.. It is progressive and you have to be patient and persistent.
Don't be in a hurry to give up.

varieties but not more than ONE new food per week.
