Well my LO will be almost 6 months! We are looking forward to introducing solids. I went to a class about this topic and there are some things that left me confused. Is rice cereal a first food because it's easy on the tummy? What about iron? If I make my own rice cereal would it have enough iron? What first foods are alternatives with iron? Also it was mentioned not to give sweet foods first, cause baby will only want sweet after that or develop a sweet tooth. Isn't breastmilk sweet? I don't get it? Eggs (yolk&whites) can be given @ 6 months, peanut butter before a year? I like The idea of BLS and don't want to give rice cereal if not necessary. Just dont know where to start and there's so much info to take in!
