The ladies at the beauty salon will be happy to know that I finally started K on rice cereal! Yippee! K is 5 months old, so I didn’t wait until he was 6 months. I started him on the cereal because he displays all of the “I’m ready to chow down” signs.
· Whenever Mommy and Daddy eat, K wants to be at the table with us.
· He grabs everything we put into our mouths.
· He can hold his head and upper body up.
· He doesn’t seem satisfied with just breast milk or formula.
So, I caved and started him on the cereal. But, because I’m a wannabe earthy, cloth diapering, milk pumping, homeschooling, arts and crafts Mommy, I gave him Earth’s Best brown rice cereal. He seems to like it and after 4 days, he hasn’t exhibited any signs of an allergic reaction. So, I guess we’re good to go. This weekend I’m going to introduce bananas! K is in for a treat! Of course, to go along with my wannabe earthy mom image, I’m going to buy a food processor or some type of puree machine. As you can see I have no idea what to buy, but I’m going to find out!
I would like to say however that although I caved in before K turned 6 months, he did start sleeping through the night without adding the rice cereal to his bottle. So…I was right! 1st time Mama does knows best! LOL! It’s 1 for Rev. Mommy and 0 for the ladies at the salon! Just kidding! In the meantime, here’s my little one at his 1st solid-food meal.
