I know that the old-school way of doing everything is always hard to break, but we tried this time. With Charlie, he had his first cereal the day before he turned 4 months old. Looking back, this was way too early. The boy had heart surgery at 7 weeks old and was just starting to really grow. Mommy milk was enough for him. With Owen, we decided we would wait until he was 6 months. Well, we gave him his first solids this weekend, two weeks before 6 months.
I’m pretty sure I’ve decided to skip cereal completely this time around. We barely gave Charlie cereal and since it has practically no nutritional value, we skipped right to bananas for Owen. I mixed about 1/4 of a banana with some breastmilk and mushed it all up.
I’m so glad we waited this long because not only is it better for him, but he caught on much quicker, meaning slightly less-mess!
He loved it!
