Solid Food Updates

I wanted to share that suddenly this past weekend at 5 and a half months DJ suddenly decided to take to solids. It really was like a light switched on and she wants to eat now. As I mentioned earlier she did have a bad head cold and just finished up antibiotics so maybe that’s why the sudden change but I’m thinking she just needed some practice and wanted to start on her own time.

Before we were feeding her every few nights after her milk. She would fuss in the high chair and get aggravated very easily. On Saturday when J went to feed her squash she suddenly was grabbing the spoon, opening her mouth, keeping the food in her mouth.

She ate a whole “cube” of squash and then about a tablespoon of rice in one sitting! We are now sending two cubes of food to daycare for in the mornings.

This was her this week with sweet potatoes!

  1. I am having a difficult time getting my 7-month old to eat food. She hates it, her lips are sealed tight, and she gets fussy when she sees me coming with a bowl of food. She even notices when I get the tray out of the freezer and pop out a cube of veggies. Nursing is all she wants.
    Yay for your little one starting to like food !
