I really shouldn’t read any sort of “baby milestone” article. I spend way too much time thinking about how Tate stacks up, which is just a recipe for anxiety and heartburn. I happened to be skimming one of these (trying to figure out if Tate might be behind because he has yet to “discover his toes”) and noticed that it said babies at four months can start eating solids. My little itty baby is big enough for solids? Seriously?
I have been told that if Tate eats solids he will be more likely to sleep through the night (though most things I read contradict that notion). And I have been encouraged to start him on solids so that I can have a break – nursing Tate is a full time job. The thing is, I am so not ready to give him solids. Currently, the only food he seems interested in is ice cream (go figure). I think I can safely say it will be a few months before we start in on the solids at the Petersen household.
I feel secure in the thought that each family and introduces solids into their babies schedule at their own pace. I am just curious when you introduced solids for your babies, and if you felt a little rushed by the whole process?
