    Default Started solids today....

    We started solids today, or should I say tried to. DD is 7 1/2 months and we figured it is time. She has picked up 2 more feedings a day since turning about 6 months.

    So I bought a beautiful avocado, cut it up, and placed it on the tray of the highchair. DD thought this was great fun and proceeded to squish it up and explore. Finally one got one in her mouth and her big smile immediately went to horror. Her eyes watered up and she pushed the little avocado out. Then all the milk that was in her stomach, because I had just nursed her, decided to come up too.

    Oh well, it was a fun for DH and I. We now have some great pictures and a video to go along with it. Maybe next week we shall try bananas.

    Oh my! This sounds almost exactly like our LO!

    See post #9 on this thread:

    We got the whole thing on video and posted it on our LO's website

    We tried banana yesterday - our LO is very good at picking it up and getting it into his mouth, just gets a very disturbed expression and I'm not sure if it's a reaction to the taste or texture (or both). Only a little bit of the banana actually stayed in his mouth, and thankfully there wasn't a spitup episode.

    Good luck with your ongoing food adventures with your LO!
