  • Started cereal at 4 months (not all that consistently though).  We did just cereal until 6 months then started veggies.  Once we started veggies he loved sweet potatoes!

    I think rotisserie chicken and squash casserole.... DH is having a work dinner, so no vegetarian meal tonight! Big Smile

  • Answer to the first three questions:  I haven't had my baby yet so I can't answer...but, I keep hearing great things about the book Super Baby Food.  It talks about when to introduce different foods to your baby and at what stages.  I think that is what I'm going to go off of.  (If you are interested in the book I know you can get it cheaper on Ebay and Amazon!)

     

    What are we eating for dinner? Chicken Coconut Curry with brown rice and green salad!

    (I found this chart from wholesomebabyfood.com to be very helpful in terms of what I should be feeding him when. I printed it out and kept it on my refrigerator.)

    Thanks for the link, I'm printing the chart right now! 

    Is it hilarious to you that this site about making your own healthy baby food has a big Dunkin Donuts ad on it? :)

     

  • When did you start feeding solids to the baby? 6 months

    What did you start with? oatmeal mixed with BM

    What were the fave foods for the first few months? squash, sweet potatoes, bananas (DS was very weird and did not like "the real deal"...he preferred baby food from jars.  I guess like father like son.)

    And a random one to wrap it up: What are YOU eating for dinner tonight? We were having spaghetti but DH just called and vetoed that idea.  So, I don't know what he has up his sleeve.
