Andrew had his first taste of "solid" food yesterday!
I only partially consider this rice cereal to be solid because it's still mostly breast milk. And (probably because of that) he actually liked it a lot!
We were ready with his arsenal of bibs! (Don't worry, he just wore one at a time!)
After each bite he would open his mouth and lean toward the spoon for more.
We gave it to him twice, and he didn't finish the bowl either time. I think he's used to getting his food so much more quickly when he nurses or takes a bottle, so one tiny spoonful at a time got a little frustrating for him I think. Maybe it'll be a little better as we add less liquid to it.
But I think he did really well, considering it was his first time!
I wasn't planning on starting him on solids until closer to six months, but his pediatrician told us that he's ready to start because of where he is developmentally. I'm not looking forward to needing to buy or make baby food, but it's still exciting to see how Andrew is growing up!
