When Kalena was a baby I was SO excited to start feeding her "real" food. That was because I didn't realize that baby food is a big fat pain. You have to buy it (or make it) and spoon feed the baby and it makes a giant mess and maybe she'll like it, maybe not. UGH. At Will's 4 month appointment the pediatrician said the recommendation about solid food has changed and 6 months is now the recommended age to start. This did not make me sad.
In fact, I was sort of thinking I'd skip the baby food altogether this time. I think I'd just prefer to nurse until he's ready to eat ACTUAL food. (Kalena quit eating baby food altogether at like 8 months, so it probably wouldn't be too much longer anyway.) Maybe he'll get super interested (like my nephew Eli who is just a little older and LOVES baby food. Seriously, check out this video.) If that's the case I'll deal with baby food. Otherwise, I'm just not so interested. What do you think of the baby food stage?
