My ds is 24 weeks today and since he's been giving the signs of being ready for some time, I decided to try some mushed up banana on his high chair today and watched to see what he'd do with it. He did not know what to do! . I have been reading a lot about BLS and will likely do many aspects of this approach, but today I also gave him a couple tiny spoonfuls of rice cereal mixed with bm to start things slowly. He spit them out too, but I couldn't believe he opened his mouth right up for the spoon and literally grabbed it from my hands and put it in his mouth - on his first feeding!
