first food

Postby jessm » Wed May 09, 2012 10:52 am

I'm starting DS on solids at 6 months, and am trying to decide on a first food. I definitely want it to be a veggie, but I haven't decided which one. Thoughts?

i think the first thing i gave to my DD to taste was either banana or avocado. i can't remember which was first. i put it in those mesh bag things and she sucked on it.

We did baby-led weaning and I'm a big fan of that. Just boil/steam a few vegetables until they are very soft, put them in front of the baby, and let 'em at it.

I ended up starting him a little early because he clearly wanted it/was ready for it. We started with avocado, he wasn't a huge fan! So we tried oatmeal, he loved that. Now he really enjoys his peas and we will be trying sweet potatoes tonight!
