When Stella had her 4 month well check a few days ago, her pediatrician recommended that now was a good time to introduce solids. Well, with the cold that she has had this week, she was not very interested in trying new things. So, the first few attempts failed miserably. But, I am nothing if not persistent, so I went along with the motto, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!" So, with much patience, I gave it another shot...and another...and another. Until at last, she got it! Just like a baby bird.
So far, she is just eating rice cereal, but looking ahead I am thinking about making our own baby food. This is something that I had always wanted to do with my older kids, but working full time left me with very little extra time, so I went with commercial baby foods. It was just so much easier.
So dear readers, I am seeking your advice. Have you made your own baby food? What worked for you? I would love to know. Thanks!
