Good Eats

On Monday my baby girl turned 6 months old. To celebrate we had our first adventure with eating solid foods.

 Before you ask me why she didnt eat solid foods til now I will give you my reasonings, We delayed solids til 6 months because Aubrey is breastfed and from my research that is what the AAP and most other health organizations recommend. This research is NEW... so your pedi may still recommend 4 months. My nephew started at 3 months. To my girls from the mommy boards......Im not saying Im right and you're wrong...... just sayin how I chose to do it.

Here is some of my research...... kellymom, Dr Sears

We did rice first,,,, on Friday we are having bananas....and tuesday sweet potatoes! Im making my own baby food... for a good website on making food check out Wholesome baby food.

Looks like she's enjoyed it!

I liked your disclaimer. Things have changed dramatically since I first started having kids (almost 17 yrs ago!). Just like every parent is different, so are children. One must take into account ALL of the factors before making a decision for their child. Weigh the pros and cons, do the research and speak with pedi's, friends, family, etc. Nothing wrong with making a very well informed decision.
