Being a first-time mom is terrifying, being told you have to feed your adorable little person solids at 4-months is even more terrifying! My dream during my pregnancy was to ensure that peanut ate foods that were home made, wholesome but even more so that he had a wide food base. Sounds easy enough right? WRONG! In steps slightly panicked mom (insert cute baby wondering what mom is panicking about) and begins the journey into solids.
On peanuts 4-month ‘monthday’ he sat down and had a delicious spread of homemade butternut, a whole 4 spoonfuls! Easy enough, steam the butternut, puree it (I did this hot as it retained more liquid then), set aside to cool, gather nerves and hit it.
And boy, was it a hit!
We continued the butternut journey for three days to ensure baby had no issues with the butternut, trying to increase his spoonfuls ever so slightly and then moved on to delicious juicy pear. He was getting the hang of it, an so was I!
Just remember, slowly does it when starting the solids journey, and that you are probably panicking for nothing. They’ve got this! 🙂
