Yes, we gave our little 6-month-old his first solid foods yesterday! Rice baby cereal with formula. Yum yum.
This is the "before" picture:
"WHY ARE YOU NOT FEEDING ME RIGHT NOW??? CAN'T YOU SEE I'M ABOUT TO DIE!!!!"
This is the "after" picture:
"Mmmm. A full belly and feeling good!"
This is a video of the first bite:
This is a video of how the rest of it went:
He ate 2 tablespoons of dry rice cereal mixed with 2 ounces of formula!
And he loved it! Holy cow, I have a kid who enjoys food! It all seemed so unreal....
Eczema, anyone? This is exactly what happened when we started Caleb on solid foods. (By the way, it's much worse in real life than it is in the picture.)
If this is food allergies, that's right up my alley.
And in all of my worst nightmares.
