DD is going to be 6 months next week and she is ready for solid food! Yay! So, I was wondering, I planned on starting with bananas, should I mash them with a little BM and feed them to her or give her some small pieces of ripe banana? I love the idea of her being able to feed herself, and I think she would love it, too. But I wasn't sure if this would be too abrupt a way to start solids. Should I do a few days of mashed bananas to introduce the taste, then let her try herself?
