hi Kashmira ! a child should be breastfeed exclusively till he completes 6 months of age. it's a new dish for baby, he would take time to develop it's taste . keep trying. to begin with count even 2 spoons as success. avoid force feeding him as that would make him averse to food. make meal time fun time. sing a rhyme or keep him occupied . avoid gadgets or distractions around. hope this helps!
