Violet had her 4-month check-up a couple of weeks ago. Since Collin wanted to be present for her first venture into solid food, we waited until Mother’s Day to officially introduce her to rice cereal. The word that sums up her first reaction was…Meh. She seems to really like the addition of mashed banana! When Conner was introduced to solids, Collin and I would take turns on what fruit or veggie would be next. So, her next adventure will be peas (and if she hates it she can blame Daddy).
Here are a few questions for the Mommy’s out there (and Daddy’s):
1) Do you buy your baby food or make it yourself?
2) For homemade rice cereal, how to you include the iron that is found in the store bought iron-fortified cereals?
3) Any funny stories about feeding your wee little ones? Who doesn’t love a messy baby face, eh?!
