Charli has officially started eating solids and y’all, IT IS SO FUN! I knew she was ready for something other than bottles right around 5 months, when she started to get really interested in the food we were eating. Well, I was right – the girl has been loving her purees and truly looks forward to them each day now!
It can definitely be an overwhelming thing to add into your baby’s routine, especially as a first time mom – there are so many methods, gadgets & things you need to know! I did some research online (I highly recommend Solid Starts), and truly just trusted my mother’s intuition when it came with which method was best for us. We started with homemade purees, and she’s been loving it so far. It’s such a special time in our day that we both look forward to! (It’s also another great way to fill some time during awake time, haha!)
Right now, food is purely just an additive for fun and learning. Charli’s milk intake hasn’t changed at all. The goal is to start introducing more (actual) solid foods when she hits 6-7 months. I’ve really enjoyed making the purees for her and seeing which foods she loves most!
