Starting solids

One of the funniest things in the world is watching a baby taste solid food for the first time.

We started with rice cereal on Sunday. I bought a box of Hipp Organic Baby Rice but put it away in the cupboard while dithering about whether it is too early to start them on it or not.

Monkey took to it like a fish to water. He has better hand-mouth coordination and has been chewing on a teether for a while already. More food was smeared across his face than anything else but a fair bit got swallowed too.

Lion Cub recycled the same spoonful of porridge over and over. He has the better appetite for the bottle but he is less than impressed by the cereal.

Angel Nanny suggested making the cereal more runny and now both boys are finishing 5tsp of porridge twice a day.

Is it odd that I’m so inordinately proud of my babies for being able to eat real food? They are so very clever!
