Along with turning six months, Stella has started eating real live solid foods. (as apposed to just rice cereal, which she’s been on for a little over a month) I didn’t really know when I wanted to start solids, funny how different I’ve done things from my first go-round. But when Stella started freaking out everytime we ate anything and trying to take bites of everything, I decided now is a good time.
When Harlo was a baby I made all her babyfood. She had been on jarred food for a really short time before I started making it myself and we stuck with it til the end. This time, I obviously couldn’t imagine it any other way. I don’t think I’ll give her jarred food at all. (at least that’s my goal.)
I definitely noticed a benefit to waiting a while to introduce solids until she was ready. Harlo didn’t really get the hang of bite, swallow, open for a few months.. Stella has gotten it from day one!
