Starting solids.

Olive will be five months in about a week an a half, and a couple weeks ago we started her on solids.
“no just wait until she’s 6 months” I heard a lot. But, being Olives mother, I decided what was best for MY daughter.
So I pumped some milk, and gave her some cereal, she took to it right away.
We bought a couple jars of baby food, but decided against it after reading the ingredients, and remembering how simple it is to make your own baby food.
So someone bought us a baby bullet for Christmas (it is amazing)
After a three day watch and wait with the cereal, I made her some peas and spinach! She was pretty good with that.
No constipation problems, no stomach upsets, nothing bad, just good.
If you are around my age, a lot of us ate solids at four months, and if you are older, even earlier, now, we are all fine right!?! And so long as your not a moron, and pay attention if your baby is in distress it’s fine.
It is always best and easier on their bellies if you mix the cereal with breast milk.
Olive is loving it.
