    Thanks for the ideas. We do lots of broccoli! I forgot about cucumber, but I can start that. At what time did your kids start eating greens without cooking them, like raw spinach? The first time we tried some lettuce it got a bit stuck in her mouth/throat. That was at 10 or 11 months I think.

    Egg yolk was one of the first foods we gave our daughter and I say go for it. It is such a nutrient dense food and the recommendations on when to offer it are changing. If you can get pasture raised eggs, even better!

    Did you give it to her plain? So far BLS is leading right back to the breast, which is totally fine with me. One week apart we've tried egg yolk, sweet potato, banana. Funny that the only thing she doesn't put in her mouth at 28.5 weeks is food. I am happy to let her take her time on this.

    DJ was like that. HE was a TOTAL mouther. And yet the banana and avacado went in his hair, all over his thighs, everywhere BUT his mouth. So we put away it was about a month in from trying that he finally put something in his mouth and then BACK in his mouth. That food was watermelon.

    Way too lazy for formula
