you need to limit his milk feeds and alternate them with solids. Start with a spoon or so and gradually increase the amounts of feed according to his acceptance. Keep a gap of minimum 2 hours between his milk feed and solid feed, so that he is hungry and accepts e. Introduce only one food at a time, let him have it for 3-4 days and then introduce another food. Initially keep the consistency pouring/flowing and then thicken it according to his acceptance. Keep seasonings very mild, as babies don't generally like very strong flavours. Hope it helps.
