Ruari’s first food

{Ruari at 22 weeks}

Sunday we tried out “real” food with Ruari. It went well! I think she liked it… It was so messy I’m not even sure she swallowed anything. We tried it again Monday and she loved it. I guess we’ll keep trying. 🙂

{Rice cereal}

We had purchased a small box of cereal so we could try it out. Just need to mix in some breast milk:


Check the consistency….

{Looks about right}

Then feed baby:

{That was messy!}

I didn’t actually use the spoon to feed her. We had a suggestion from a fellow mom blogger, Courtney at Love Love, to use my finger to feed her. Seemed to really work! I tried a baby spoon and she started to cry… :s

{Distracted easily…}

We’ll keep trying out the cereal for a while and maybe try some other goodies as well! 🙂

    those pics are hilarious. i pureed food for conrad up until he was about 8 months. it's the best. I didn't put breast milk in it though-formula for him, breast milk in the bottles! He seemed to waste a lot of his food spitting it out-so i figured i'd waste the formula and not the valuable boobie milk. goodness, those eyes. she's soooo gorgeous.

    hahaha, oh little girl, its good stuff, give it another try 🙂 I remember the morning I fed Charlie his first cereal. He kept making an icky face, with every bite, but somehow I managed to get him to eat the entire bowl.

    Oh my word, she is too cute. Good luck with the solids!.. I'm sure it'll get a little less messy in time 🙂

    She certainly looks satisfied! I just think when you get to start feeding your baby solids it's so overwhelmingly exciting. I mean they get to be a part of the family around the table around supper time, and it just feels so right!Glad the first feedings are going to well!
