If she's doing well with that I would give the pears a break and try something else - maybe carrots? for another three days and then from around week 2, use one of these two as your lunch base and keep intro-ing more in the am.

Doing well is really as simple as not rejecting it and it isn't upsetting her digestion IMHO!

Rejecting would be turning her head away, spitting it out etc

Spitting it out and it not being swallowed when starting out are different I think. Don't worry if it isn't going in going in too much. She has only had solids for 2 days so doesn't now how to chew/swallow yet! It is all about experimenting and having fun right now. Getting her used to new tastes and textures. Chewing the spoon is a great start TBH!

We used to have 2 spoons. One for Olly to play with and one for me to get the food in! Mind you think that was a bit later on. 2 days in is so very early!
