My kind and knowledagble babysitter is in opnion that we should take it easy (and stop being overly enthusiastic) with the feeding new food timing. However, I couldn't help it considering all other kids were already on fruit purees at 5 months or so.
So, (naughty me) I let him try some apple puree last weekend, 3 days short of is 6th month! His first reaction was that of grimace! And he actually stuck out his tongue. Then as the second mouthful went in, he looked at me and started to smack his lips. Mmmm......just a little sourish but quite nice!
No pics I am afriad coz I fed him alone without hubby!
Then on Thursday, 2 days after his 6th month, I steamed some carrots and put it into his Nestle baby rice. He ate it up like normal. Guess the carrots did not change the taste of the baby rice much. And I did not give him alot for fear he would turn orange! hehe....
Then just just now, I was browsing in the baby food aisle of Cold Storage and started looking at all the baby food. There were actually many varieties of baby food sold. There were jars of green peas, squash, sweet potato, pumpkin in all combinations. But I reckon I should stay away from the combination stuff just in case he reacted to something in the paste. Best to stick to the one ingredient foods first!
Pear looked like a safe choice. Apple and sweet potato seemed also safe...but I have that at home and can do it myself. So, I bought the pear Heinz. I will let him have a taste tommorrow.
And if he doesn't like it, hubby can have the best experience ever of eating up after boyboy! Hehehe.....
So far, boyboy loves trying all the new food I have been mouthing into him. I wonder who is enjoying themself more - me or him!
Now, I know why my mother in law loves to feed her 3 boys! The joy of seeing them eat well!
And now, presenting Christopher at 6 months!
Apart from his food, he loves the door knob, the remote control, his left thunb and mummy's shirt right at the shoulder where his head rests when being carried!
