Baby + Food

We introduced solid food to Rosie this month. I was nervous to give her something besides breast milk [and dirt off the carpet]for a lot of reasons: I felt confused about the what/when/how of solids and I didn't like the idea of stinky-er diapers. Plus solid food meant Rosie was growing up which made me a little sad. We finally gave in and she's now experienced avocado, apple, and sweet potato.

She's so fun to watch eat...even though it usually takes 5 mins for the food to get to her mouth (when she's feeding herself). Then with applesauce, she'll shiver with each bite she takes. It's so cute! Then this week I was eating an apple in front of her and she turned into a crazed maniac. I don't know what it was, but she looked like a zombie. She was OBSESSED and HAD to get to the apple. She's since calmed down and allows us to take turns:

We're looking forward to introducing her to all of the other yummy tastes out there!

  1. Have you studied baby led weaning at all? It's about how we just introduce them to tastes and different foods to get them used to it, b breastmilk is still the main form of nutrition until a year. It really makes sense to me instead of shoving different cereal down their throats and processed "puffs" that just develop poor eating habits.... There's my two cents! :)
