There are all sorts of things you can read about when to start your baby on solid foods. Cues to look for, milestones to meet, but I'm not here to tell anyone when to start feeding their baby solids.
After talking to our Health Visitor, we decided to start Blondie Boy on solids. He's up to 8oz a feed and isn't always satisfied, stares at us eating, eats his hands, but most of all I do not believe he will wait until July (6 months) to start solids. I want him to be here in Glasgow when we start in case he has any allergic reactions. He is at a higher risk for food allergies (more on that later) so it is important to me that we try the same food for 5 days and that he can see his own doctor if anything happens.
So today will be Day 5 of Rice Cereal for the boy. I mix up 2 baby spoons of the rice cereal with half a scoop of formula and enough cooled boiled water (a tablespoon+) so it's smooth and almost runny, but not quite.
He seems to like it so far! Any suggestions for what to try next?
