Anyone introducing solids? and how about water?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Cassidy has been longingly watching us eat for awhile now... so, being that she is a week from 6 months, we decided to give her some avocado tonight... I also gave her a few sips of water after out of a bottle.  She has had a little water from cups here and there, when she seems interested.  

 

what are you mamas doing about introducing solids? 

 

What about water? How much, and how do you give it? bottle, sippie cup, regular cup? 

 

Thanks, from a new mama :)

Hey!!! Yeah, I was NOT going to introduce solids until after 6 months, but Kai straight grabbed the guacamole off my tortilla chip and shoved in in his mouth before I could react :S We've only been doing a couple bites of avocado or sweet potato, and next week when he hits six months I'm willing to let him try things I'm eating if he shows interest. As far as water and juice? I wont be actively introducing juice, well, ever really...too much sugar, too expensive, I'd rather just have him eat the fruit! Water, well, breastmilk is mostly water, so I think I will just start putting some BM in a sippy cup for him when he really starts chowing down.

 

It goes so unbelievably fast...
