10 days to go!! So excited!
OK, I'm a bit nerdy to be excited about giving my LO solids, but he seems to be ready now. He sits well unassisted- until he gets distracted and goes plop! He is working on that pincer grasp. He is very interested in what we are eating. We have been giving him a spoon and bowl to play with for a while now. We are going to celebrate his six month birthday by giving him some sweet potato for dinner
We plan to do BLS, but I couldn't get a hold of the book about it. I figure it's not essential to read the whole thing right away and will wait for interlibrary loan to come through for me. Anyway, I have a few questions:
1. Is it ok to start with 2 meals? Lunch and dinner? If not, how long before adding in a second meal per day?
2. My ped. said everything needs to be able to "go mush" so he doesn't choke. I didn't have a chance to explain BLS very well but told him he'd be getting cooked soft stuff right away and he seemed concerned about choking hazards. If the food is soft enough he can't choke, right? How soft does it need to be? Soft enough that I can mush it with a finger?
3. As you add food to the baby's repertoire, do you offer a few different things at each meal? How much do you offer?
I think that's it for now...
