Time for food! Dr. Ben gave us the go ahead to start introducing baby food into Rhett’s daily routine. Here are a few of necessities we have learned work great!
Let me start by saying how INCREDIBLY EASY it is to make your own baby food. PLUS it saves money and is better for baby! Just think… baby food sits on the grocery store shelf for at least a year and doesn’t expire – hello preservatives. We made the choice to take a little time each week or a couple times a month to make it ourselves. 15-20 minutes gives you enough food for the entire week, take a couple of hours on a Sunday and you’re good for the entire month. Like any other mom, I have a million things going on like work, juggling house stuff, spending time with the hubby and um…taking care of a baby! but let me just tell you that it takes no time at all to do this. While it can seem overwhelming, a little practice goes a long way.
Just like mommy! And Lolli helped him eat it! Dr. Ben gave us the go ahead to try solid food. In talking to my cousin, Kelly (a very successful mom of 3 boys), I decided to give avocado a try like her. Boy, did Rhett like it. I’m attempting to make my own baby food – again, driven by Kelly as example and bestie Brandy. Kelly sent the greatest book and Uncle Danny sent a fabulous cooking set. Much more on that later. We whipped up a fresh batch of pureed green yumminess and Rhett gobbled it right up. The only problem we had was he wasn’t getting it fast enough. Patience will come my son.
