OK, so we officially started on solids! How exciting. First... start with a happy, slightly hungry baby: CHECK!
Second, give her a little food on the high chair tray to play with and experiment with. CHECK! (we started with avocados)
Third: offer the baby food on a spoon. Play this up, smile, make MMMM noises and open your mouth.
See if baby accepts the food: CHECK! (mmmmmm)
Continue even if the baby spits some out (she didn't spit much out, actually! This was a bit that she did) CHECK!
Continue the feeding if she seems up for it: OK...
End when they show the smallest sign of dissatisfaction or fuss (remember this is only for practice!) Then feed the baby the 'real' way: CHECK!
All in all, a pretty good experience. She did make a few 'yuck' faces which were pretty cute. Nick said it's because we started her on avocado and he thinks they're gross (too bad, babe!) Sweet potatoes are next week. In the meantime, I picked up one of these and I'm so excited about it! YAY for fresh baby food :)
