My kitchen has somehow shrunk. No, it’s not all the earthquakes in Asia — it’s our ginormous high chair. I hate it. I live with it though, it’s only for a year or 2… right? We got it used at a Kid to Kid in Utah. It’s served us well, but it’s by no means tiny.
But, back to the main subject.
My pedi said to start sometime after the 5th month with solids, and I’m preparing. Baby cereal’s on the grocery list. But, I went to lunch with a friend who said she never did cereal, she just went right to food from the table. While this sounded delightful (for some reason, I don’t think that rice cereal has the proper pH balance for my skin after having it spit on me with the past 2 kids), I worry about allergies (my mom’s allergic to wheat — so we just like to test stuff out pretty carefully).
Anyway, do you have tips for starting your kids on solids? When’d you start? Did you make your own? Did you use a processor or a food mill? Do you hate that this entry is on mashed foods?
So do I.
