Nola is just a few days shy of 6mths so I bought some oatmeal and she ate some for the first time the other night. She devoured it. I'm not kidding. By the 4th spoonful she was grabbing my hand for the spoon to eat. By the 6th spoonful she was done with the spoon, grabbed the bowl and drank the oatmeal Thank god I do not have another picky eater

That's too funny! Nola is getting so big, so fast! Hooray for a great first food experience!

Jonah loves his oatmeal too, and often times I'll accidentally make a huge bowl of it (it's hard to tell what amount it will cook out to be!) I'm talking like twice what I would be able to eat, and he chows it right down! Ive just started adding the tiniest bit of brown sugar and cream to it rather than breastmilk and applesauce like I was before, and it's like he's in some kind of oatmeal euphoria!

Jonah LOVED (should say love) oatmeal! He really love sit with some cinnamon & real cinnamon is so good for you - it has calcium, iron, C & K, and even not fiber carbs....go figure. Anyway - not to burst your bubble...Jonah ate EVERYTHING for the longest time & THEN got picky. He used to devour asparagus, eggs, artichokes, etc...and now he is SUPER selective on what he will even try. Hopefully he will go back to his happily eating self & hopefully Nola stays a great eater!

I think that *my* Jonah is taking notes from *your* Jonah! I could have written this myself! Until about two weeks ago, he would eat anything I offered him. All I can get him to eat are oatmeal (as stated above) cheerios, and anything that comes out of a bright yellow gerber box. I too am hoping it's just a phase!!!

Stick some green beans and carrots in your gerber box when he's not looking! LOL..j/k obviously!

I've had good and bad eaters...I think almost every kid has a "picky" stage that they go through....they find their "likes" their "loves" and their "dislikes"...and then they try to tell you what they are and I think, personally, that they ONLY want their "loves" and so turn their noes up at everything else. LOL....eventually they snap out of it.

Anyway....That is so funny she loved it so much. Olive gagged when I first gave her oatmeal..and in fact she still dislikes it today...but eats everythign else just dandy...but baby cereal...yeah...dry heaves like I'm trying to poison her! lol

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Well I should clarify - although he is still not a "good" eater ATM, he is improving some. What kills me is that he will act like something is delicious one day & gag on it the next & then love it again in a few days. UGH -- LOL His #1 thing he is obsessed with right now is jam...he wants it on everything & anything...yucka. He even begged for it on bananas the other day...BLECH
