Well, we have entered the solids portion of babyfeeding. Yes, breastfeeding is still in full swing morning, mid-morning, lunch, before naps, bedtime, in the middle of the night, so on & so forth. But, he was also clearly interested in real people food. We could tell by the grunting, drooling, reaching, grabbing & general hysteria when we'd sit at the table. So, on Cade's 6 month birthday we ventured into the world of food. And there's been no going back because he loves to eat.
|first food. avocado. despite the look, he loves it.|
So we started with ripe avocado, followed by almost every other food we ate for dinner that was mushy enough. He's a mess, but doing great. A few weeks ago, I was running through store & found squeezable baby food pouches. What a fantastic idea! For a baby who is a good sucker & likes food & has a mom with spinach on the stairs issues, this is perfect! So we've added a pouch for lunch & dinner since then, supplemented by whatever else we're eating.
The food seems to be agreeing with him. Last weigh in, earlier this week, at 7 & a half months: 19.6 lb!
