You might remember that a few weeks ago, we tried to introduce solids to the babies. It didn’t go very well. Everything I read said to wait a week or two and try again.
That’s just what we’ve done, and Miss Thang has been eating rice cereal every morning and having a vegetable with two meals every day for a week now! Success! She absolutely loves sweet potatoes, or suh-weeeeeet potatoes, as I say to get her to smile and gobble it up. The past 2 days, I’ve tried butternut squash, and she is not sure about that one. She’s been having troubles with her gums, so I don’t know if she just wasn’t up for eating or doesn’t like it. We will keep working on it.
Now, Corbin is a different story. He still hasn’t lost his tongue thrust reflex, which we’ve deemed his lizard tongue. I still go through the motions with him because I know he will eventually get it. There have been some days that he has eaten a few bites of cereal or the sweet potatoes.So I think we’re moving in the right direction. He’d much rather hold the spoon, than eat anything from it.
But what they both really like…. bananas! I just want them to be interested in veggies first before I let them have to many sweet things. Here is a video of them eating bananas a couple days after we first tried the cereal.
