two sundays ago we started giving c purees! i had been itching and super eager to give C actual fooooood. i researched it for over a month and asked all my mommy friends about how and what they all prepared for their little ones. i chose these two below to start with for a few reasons…
- friends told me that rice cereal was an empty carb and not something that babies had to eat first. our doctor also said rice cereal is linked to childhood obesity soooo we skipped it and went straight to purees!
- some say that if you start with a fruit, like applesauce, your babe might not eat veggies or enjoy them after. so we picked a NON-gassy veggie that would be gentle or c’s stomach. mike and i thought a lot about whether or not we should do carrots first but those are sweeter so we went with green beans.
c HATED green beans, as you can see. sigh. i’ve given it to her for about a week straight but she doesn’t love it any better. i read that you give it to the babe at least 10 times before you see that the baby doesn’t like it. and every 3 days you can introduce a new food.
every night is a super fun night and experience at home. c gets the purees EVERYWHERE but it just makes the whole experience that much more fun. ^^
