We started Avery on solids on her six month birthday on Tuesday. There was much debate between my pediatrician and I on what solid foods to start her on. She suggested rice cereal (and continues to do so today) as the first real solid food that Avery should try. After doing my research and realizing there was no nutritional benefit, I decided otherwise.
I reached out to you last week to see what the first solid food you gave your baby, and the overwhelming response was avocado. Avocado contains valuable nutrients and “good fat” for your baby. It was already on the top of my list as a first food to try for Avery, but after seeing everyone else say they did it too, it just confirmed it.
I was so unsure as to how she was going to react to the foods. Was she going to spit it out? Gag? Love it? I had absolutely no idea. I sat Avery in her highchair ready to eat. Her eyes got bigger as I put the bowl of green mush right in front of her.
How did she react to her first taste of food? Check it out and see after the jump!
We are now on day three of avocado and she is absolutely in love with it. Can’t wait to start another vegetable in a few days!
How did your baby react to their first solid food?
