Today Babble published a slideshow with a guide to solid foods for your baby. Although I was a little surprised there was so much meat listed, I’ve also heard that meat is a really good first food for baby since most people are not allergic to it.
Fuzz started solids last week! He’s a champ so far. I haven’t even noticed much of a tongue thrust reflex. We started with #8 on Babble’s list: avocado. I skipped rice cereal altogether, it didn’t seem necessary. So far he’s also had sweet potato, carrots, peas, banana and baby oatmeal. The only thing he’s been weird about is banana. I hope it was just a one time thing, cuz that’d be a bummer if he didn’t like it. Here’s a video of him trying sweet potato for the first time. He seems to dig it, after a couple of tastes! In case you’re wondering, that pair of scissors is a lot farther away from him than it looks!
