So I started the little one out on solids. Nothing major mind, but just to get her new tastes and such.
The first thing I tried to give her was sweet potato. She made a face at me (it was SO CUTE) that was like "Mom, what are you doing to me?!" but she ate them. Unfortunately I put the rest in the fridge and forgot about it and they went bad, so she only got one taste of it.
I had also bought bananas. I tried those yesterday... I put a couple baby-spoonfuls in a bowl, set her up in her bumbo on the couch and offered it to her. At first she didn't want anything to do with it. But once she had a taste... if she could have crawled out of that bumbo (she hasn't figured it out) she'd have done so to get to them! She literally was diving at the spoon whenever I'd get ready to give it to her.
This morning I doubled what I gave her yesterday -- 4 spoons instead of 2. She ate them all, and this time she knew what it was from the start and she was all about eating it. She kept grabbing for the bowl, and I let her play with it when it was empty. She stuck her hand in and was feeling all around it... I gave her a 5 oz bottle of breast milk afterwards and she finished most of it.
So I wonder... would you offer your little one more if they showed this reaction to the food? So far she hasn't shown any signs of allergy, though she's still in the 3 day wait it out period. I'm pretty sure though that if she was going to have a reaction she would have by now.
