Baby Love - Chapter 1Getting Started
Babies are ready to begin eating solid foods at four to six months of age. At this time almost all babies can learn to eat from a spoon. Most start with rice cereal mixed with breast milk or formula.
If all is going well, check with your pediatrician about beginning to feed your munchkin simple pureed fruits or vegetables. Some pediatricians recommend you start with vegetables first to avoid developing a sweet tooth. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics states that “there is no evidence that your baby will develop a dislike for vegetables if fruit is given first. Babies are born with a preference for sweets, and the order of introducing foods does not change this.”
New foods should be introduced one at a time. Wait at least two to three days before starting another to make sure your child is not allergic. Watch for any allergic reactions such as diarrhea, rash, or vomiting. Once, our son, Henry, broke out in a facial rash. We called the doctor, who suggested it might be the tomatoes in the Bolognese! Sometimes infants don’t like the acidity in tomatoes. The lesson: stop the food and then check with your doctor about the reaction.
We also made the decision to introduce new foods at breakfast or lunchtime rather than at dinnertime. In case the twins got a tummyache or gas at least it was during the day. You don’t want a gassy baby keeping you up all night!
Within a few months of starting purees, your baby should be enjoying all sorts of fruits, vegetables, and meats. You know the saying, “Variety is the spice of life!” There is no better time to introduce these healthy foods.

Not that impressed. Most recipes you can get online and don't take much to figure out. Was looking for something to introduce more new flavors.Published 11 months ago by Renee
