My boys are growing up so fast and I can’t believe that they are almost ready to start experiencing the world of foods! Today we took a little Target shopping trip (not that I needed an excuse) and we bought some exciting things to begin our transition to solids. I plan on making most of the boys food because I really want to know what they are eating and if I will be home then it really is the best choice for us. On that note I have never made baby food before and from what I hear it is pretty simple, I mean if I can cook a meal for my husband and I then I should be able to whip up some mashed green beans right? We also plan to use organic baby food as well for when we are on the go and they come in convenient little pouches so what’s not to love.
I know there are many theories on when babies should start eating food or what you should feed baby first and for us we just decided what would work best for our family and not others. We were given the green light to start solids when the boys were 4 months old and we were not comfortable with starting them at that time and our pediatrician was 100% okay with this (have I mentioned I love our pediatrician). The boys will start solids around 5.5 months and I will begin by giving them green vegetables first and then move onto other vegetables before introducing too many fruits. I know the boys will probably love the sweet stuff, but I want to give vegetables a fighting chance first.
I will admit the thought of me feeding both boys seems a little daunting, but I know we will get the hang of it and because we plan on starting off small with solids just once a day I believe we will be okay. I am looking forward to the many funny faces I will experience from them over the next few months and also for them to be able to enjoy a little food at their very first Thanksgiving!
The gear we are working with 🙂
