Ivy wasn't a very good eater until she was about a year old. Until then, she got nearly all her calories from breast milk. I started feeding her solids when she was six months old. We learned very quickly that canned baby food was a no-go. She really hated it. I pretty much gave her mashed bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes, and other sweet-ish types of food. Cereals and most vegetables were always rejected.
I've got a few things now that I didn't have when I first started feeding Ivy, like this baby puree recipe book and these little containers for freezing food. Maybe they'll help me out.
I'm hoping, of course, that Maren will take to solids better than Ivy did at first, but if not, I need some advice. Moms, what did you do to make introducing solids easier and more successful? Also, when did you start? I know you've got an opinion, so please share!
