The information about what should and shouldn't be first foods is so contradictory and confusing that I'm not surprised that so many people turn to the packets of factory made 'food' that they sell for babies.
Z is used to tasting my diverse diet via breast milk so it seems a step backwards to offer bland mush now.
The rule is if I wouldn't eat it, then he doesn't, and if I don't like the flavour then he probably will not as well. Luckily I eat everything.
Here's what's worked for us so far.
|Some good fats.
|Mixed plate of flavours.
|Mushed sweet potato and roast lamb shoulder
(aka dinner leftovers)
|Z and the sweet potato and lamb, I think we got about 1 1/2 tablespoons in.
