My Mood:
I think it could have been that his little tummy wasn't quite ready or that the broccoli and cauliflower were just too hard to digest. Were they raw? Or cooked? Does your baby have any teeth?

I have always waited until my children were over a year to introduce cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage). Also, I introduce only one new food at a time, waiting 2 or 3 days before the next new food, to help baby's little system tolerate the new food.

My baby is 10 months old, with 7 teeth, but the little sweetie barely wants anything to do with food. She loves baked sweet potato, though she dislikes banana, sweet peas, green beans, avocado, carrot, apple sauce, peach puree, plum, watermelon and cantaloupe. She occasionally put a barley biscuit, rice mummum or a cheerio in her mouth but has choked and gagged on cheerios. So yeah, perhaps you can try sweet potato next.
