This morning Charlotte had her first taste of rice cereal! I thought for sure she would hate it, because every time I've given her vitamins or Tylenol she has made an icky face and turned away. But I guess rice cereal is much more bland than the others and she actually swallowed a few bites! I know some people say to wait until they are 6 months, but our pediatrician gave the go-ahead and she is definitely ready for solids. Besides the fact she is in the 95% for weight...she is very strong and can almost sit up on her own. She also definitely seems interested in what we are eating and opens and closes her mouth when she watches us eat. Soo...I figure let's go for it! I am still back and forth about when to start her on veggies and fruits. I may wait a few weeks until she is 5 months, or maybe we will try it next week. Any suggestions?
