Well, per doctors orders Sarah has been eating rice cereal in her morning and night time bottles for almost a month now....he said she was drinking WAY too much formula....so, as for her first...its already rice cereal.....not sure about what else I want to start her on when the age requirement is hit!
My doctor told me 4 months is the perfect time to start solids. Once they look interested in what you're eating, its the best time to introduce solids. Myra has been eating some cereal (rice) and I started to give her bananas. She's just 3 months this past Saturday. I just can't keep up with her breastfeeding demands =)
Hmm I haven't even thought about that yet! Ha Ha Caiden is already interested in what we're eating! He just stares at our food when we eat, it's hilarious! We have his 4 month checkup in 3 weeks and I'm going to talk to his doctor about when we can introduce solids but haven't thought about what yet! I'm terrified of allergies! DH & I dont have any but my Mom has sooo many!
Sophia started rice cereal with a morning and evening feeding of about a tablespoon at each one via a spoon. My doctor told me to hold off on other foods until she is 6 months. Its just two more months but I am excited about having her try carrots. That will probably be our first food choice outside of the rice cereal.
I haven't started Nathan on any solids yet...we are doing awesome with the breast feeding....I wasn't expecting to go this long, with working and traveling one week a month.....but it is all working great!! I would be so pleased at the accomplishments we made if it stops anytime now, but do not have a problem pressing on for a few more months as well....or until he bites me!!
I had read somewhere that it is best to not introduce a fruit as thier first food, but instead a vegetable or two for the first week or so...this way they are more prone to not just like the sweet flavored foods...makes sense...so I may introduce something like peas, carrots, squash....
He does watch what we eat though...so he may be getting ready soon...we'll see what comes out of the well baby appt...the earliest I could get him in was 16 June!! Damn military drs....
Sarah has had bananas the last two nights....and she seems to be getting the consistency down now...at first...she was VERY confused. She is also stil getting rice cereal in her morning and night time bottles since she was 2.5 months old.
Kinlee has been eating baby food for about a month now. We started her on sweet potatoes and apple sauce and apple juice. She think the apple sauce the best. She is not a fan of green beans though. Now she is eating carrots and peachs and still apple juice. Her pedi didnt mind that we had already introduced her to foods.
jaedyn loves cereal with fruits and veggies. the doctor said it was my choice whether to wait til 6 months or start and he seemed ready by the chart of when they are ready. he has been eating a small little little bowl or cereal and fruits or veggies in the am and pm. he is almost through all the fruits and veggies, we did one for 3 days straight in case he had any reactionw which luckily he did not be he does not like carrots. he loves pears, applesuace, sweet pots, squash, bananas and peaches. I am holding off on the greens for another week or so since all the stuff i read said save thoses til last.
Sarah doesnt seem interested nor want to eat jar stuff yet. I try bc the doctor said we can experiment, but if she doesnt want to then dont force it on her. She watches us eat intently.....and seems as though she wants to, but whatever goes in her mouth comes right back out!
