|Happy bellies puffs and brown rice cereal!|
Jack ended our cereal experiment by learning to clamp his mouth shut and swing his head and arms violently during our little sessions. So we have decided to wait until 6 months old to introduce solids since we were early anyway. It is hard to tell when your baby is ready - but it is just plain obvious when you try and they aren't ready. Since it is recommended to stick with exclusive breastfeeding until 6 months we're going to follow that route as planned. (Special thanks to my playgroup for the pump up support I needed. I think everyone should have a playgroup to bounce ideas off of!)
At Easter dinner we had a little fun with Jack - he is VERY interested in pureed foods so that may be our jump off point when we retry at 6 months old. I'm so glad Grammie tried offering him some mashed carrots - he was so eager he nearly fell off her lap! Enjoy this 10 second clip of him trying to steal Daddy's mashed potatoes off the fork.
