I had posted I was going to try hm toasted rice cereal I had grounded, well I did but it was still too grainy. I tried it anyway on dd(4 1/2 months) and she wasn't thrilled, lol. Since then, I have slowed down with feeding her(I was trying to do it once a day) and just go with the flow now. She is definitely interested, but realistcally, she does't care if if we give her a spoonful of food or a teether! While holding her, if I am eating a pear or plum and she is going crazy for it, I will let her suck on it for a bit and she is so into it when I do this, I am very careful watching the skin. She also loves to take a sip of water from my glass, but she is just as contented to suck on the bottom of my cup
When we have dinner, I see if there is something for her and have been letting her sample mashed potatoes off my fingers.
oh so cute, while picking sugar snap peas, Maegan was laying down on a blanket and rolled to my pile and grabbed a pod, she sucked on it, then snapped it in two and continued to suck on it, it was very cute(the peas weren't going anywhere)
I'm so glad I remembered, lol, to slow down about this step with her! I recall reading baby stomachs are better t ofiltering out bad stuff after 6 months.
