    Hello, Babies have the natural tendency of wanting to stick to foods they are familiar with for sometime. With gradual introduction of new feeds, they might protest initially but will eventually take. I want you to be gradual about introducing new feeds, while you gradually withdraw the baby food he is on. Since it appears your baby is fine, I'm sure with time he will get used to the new feeds. Take care
