I won't say first taste of food because I feel like rice cereal isn't really much of anything. I decided with doctor's advice to go ahead and start the solids. We documented this experience:
I don't think Ainsley is quite ready. As you can tell from the video, all of it I'm pretty sure came out of her mouth. I tried again at lunch time and she only got one bite. I just don't want to cram the stuff in her mouth, that's not the point. So I think I'm going to wait a few more weeks and try again.
With Ellie I made most of her babyfood except the veggies. I definitely want to do that again, I actually enjoy it. I think to make it a little bit easier I might invest in one of those babyfood processors which cook it and puree it all in one! I'm going to enjoy seeing how Ainsley likes each new food. I love this stage... they don't make much of a mess because you control it all and they will eat anything that you put in their mouth (although they might not like it much).
