Baby spits out rice cereal
Hello,

I am trying to feed my 5 month old rice cereal. This is the 3rd week now and he spits the cereal out, or he gags and then vomits the grains that he did swallow. I have also tried mashed butternut, but he does the same thing.

Should I persevere or take a break or try another soft food?

It would be best to take a break and start again when your baby is 6 months old.
