I blogged previously about introducing solid food to my six-month-old baby and as I mentioned, we started with oatmeal. My pediatrician recommended introducing veggies next instead of fruits because lets face it, fruits are generally much sweeter and tastier – it’s the equivalent of offering dessert before dinner. Her logic made perfect sense to me, so veggies it is!
I chose avocado as her first “veggie” and let’s just say she wasn’t a fan. Thankfully I was able to try the avocado again by using some mommy trickery and mixed the avocado with her oatmeal – success!
My plan is to start introducing a new vegetable every three days or so as it is recommended you wait before introducing a new food so you can easily identify the culprit if your baby has any type of allergic reaction. So far, so good. Up next, sweet potato.
