We have not started yet. I have not really decided when i am going to start. Christopher has really started to glare at us when we are eating. If I am holding him, he will try to dive into my plate. So, it may be sooner than later. I am planning on making my own fruits and vegetables.
I spoke to my ped about it and she said not to stress it; he's gaining weight, is happy and active so she sees no need for solids. I did try, for fun, to give him some cereals twice and he just hates it! He just sits there with the cereals in his mouth, trying to push the spoon away when I get close to his mouth So I'll wait a couple more weeks and try again.
I started doing some pureed veggies and freezing it for later. I plan on making them all from bio veggies/fruits if its possible.
I've been feeding AK solids for about a month now... carrots are her favorite!!! I've been buying Gerber 1st Foods and sometimes we've been making our own. She has actually tried a lot of foods already...carrots, bananas, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, mangoes. I let her lick a piece of bacon earlier and she loooved it! (Ben got mad, he said she's not a dog lol)
we've been doing cereal for about a month and baby food for 2 weeks or so. he's had the different fruits- he had mango yesterday and MIL said not to give him any more of those for our own protection...lol
i let april lick ketchup off my fingertip and got the BLECH face. LOL!. We are doing the little jars for 4 month + olds. She LOVES all but daycare just said she doesnt like the peas which we will work on..She loves the sweet potatoes etc, she gets 1 jar a day and of course good old fashion milk.
We started giving Paige a little cereal in her formula a couple months ago just at night. And about a month ago we started giving her cereal with fruits or veggies mixed with it. I haven't found anything she doesn't like so far.
I'm skipping cereal since there's like no nutritional value to it. And we've never really been baby food buyers. We just puree our veggies and such from dinners/lunch/etc. Oh and he's a huge chunk, and he's doing fine on breastmilk.
We're the same way here Trish. I bought a baby food grinder when DS1 was 6 months and it has been priceless. After we start the basic fruits and veggies at 6 months old we will just grind up what we eat (within reason). I've started to puree and freeze fruits and veggies that are in season straight from a local farm (cheaper) so that I won't have to worry about it. Breast feeding until then works for us.
