Eating Solid Foods

Our foray in to solid foods has been going pretty well. So far, Doodlebug’s eaten oatmeal, applesauce, sweet potatoes, carrots, bananas and golden beets. Except for one jar of organic carrots, just to what it was like (not impressed), I have made everything from scratch. Oh – not the applesause, that was just unsweetened from the jar. He’s eaten applesauce both plain and with some cinnamon sprinkled on top.  I am really enjoying making my own baby food. I received the Beaba Babycook as a shower gift and it couldn’t be easier to use. It steams, chops and reheats, but I haven’t used the reheat function yet.


I am doing the pureed thing, but having looked in to baby-led-weaning am being concious of his cues to stop. So far he hasn’t really given any. Doodle has liked all of the different foods and is practically spoon-feeding himself. Either I load it up and he grabs it and shoves it in or I hold the spoon and he moves his head forward to get the spoon in his mouth. Today, he realized for the first time that he could suck food of his fingers. Very exciting! Foods on deck: avocados (as soon as the ones from the tree ripen), green beans, peas.
