When I was pregnant, my friend Mandi let me borrow this book. I highly recommend it! I took some key points and summarized them on our pantry chalkboard.
"C,P" means cooked and pureed. I decided to make his food and so far it has gone great. It is sooo easy! At first I wasn't sure what I was doing and I'm pretty sure I called my friend Lindsey every hour but now I'm more confident. :) I cook it, puree it and freeze it. Once it is frozen then I pop the cubes out of the ice tray and put them in labeled freezer bags. Every night I put a couple of cubes in the fridge to thaw out for the next day. Easy peasy.
Here are his avocados, pears, apples, bananas, squash and sweet potatoes ready to be made.
His very first taste of anything besides breastmilk was avocados. He knew just what to do with the spoon and barely spit any out. He shivered and gagged every time he swallowed but always wanted more! :)
He's not too fond of his rice cereal but he always eats it. Now that he has had bananas, I'll mix it with his cereal so it's not so bland. His absolute favorite has been sweet potatoes. He cries when they are gone. He is definitely his father's son because I hate any kind of potato and Cody could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner every single day.
We have also given him Mum Mum's. A few of my friends introduced me to these and I think he likes them. You can't tell by his face though! Haha
