I haven't tried anything other then cereal. I had read that giving fruit as a first could cause babies to reject veggies later on as the fruit is sweeter. What do you do wait until the bananas are brown and mash them up and offer them like you would cereal? I probably shouldn't have started him but for some reason I had this overwhelming guilt. I knew I had enough milk to get by but not enough to keep him gaining on track or so I think.....but gave into cereal. I may try bananas then as I have some of those too just have to wait for them to ripen.
At what point then is a good time to start them? He doesn't really ask for more nursing during the day as he is happy with playing. I usually just feed him every 2-3 hours depending on what we are doing. He is a small eater as he only takes 3-4 oz if he gets xbm if I am not home and at his size should be drinking more. Someone really needs to write a step by step book on this subject.
