Solids!

This weekend JJ started on “solids”.  Anyone with kiddos knows that “solids” is a misnomer.  The first food, rice cereal, is mixed with formula or breast milk, and just looks like formula or breast milk with stuff in it.  Certainly not my idea of a solid food.  But, right now, it is really more about getting him used to eating from a spoon, using the muscles in his mouth to get the food from the front of his mouth to swallowing it and getting used to a texture that is not pure liquid.

He has done really well!  Doesn’t seem to love or hate the rice cereal, which is fine for now.  He is a pretty adaptable baby and seems to go with the flow for the most part.  Today I am going to feed him solids 2x – as we are supposed to be building up for 4 tablespoons of cereal a day.  Doesn’t sound like a lot, but he currently has 1 tablespoon of cereal, and can maybe finish half (at the most) of it.

I think it will be interesting to see how he likes his first veggie – sweet potato – and I am excited to use my baby food maker for that!  We’ll feed him that this coming weekend.
