My heart is heavy as I write this post. I plan to wean Miss B off the bottle by age 1. I found it to be very easy with my first baby, but I just hope she does as well as he did.
I sound like a broken record, but this is another sign that my baby is growing up. I just have to remember that there are many, many wonderful memories and milestones to come!
Every parent is different. Every doctor has a different opinion. On what, you ask? Well, almost everything...but today, I'm talking FOOD. Dylan started eating many table foods at the age of 10 months. When we were kids, I think our parents fed us anything and everything by age 3 months. Haha, I'm kidding, but they did start much earlier!
Dylan was an easy baby. Happy, great eater, great sleeper, intelligent, etc. Braelyn is an easy baby. Happy, great sleeper, intelligent, etc. Did you see what I left out? GREAT EATER. Sure, she loves her BA-BA. She is not so fond of some of the foods that we have introduced to her. She does not like anything green. She does not like most vegetables. She likes most fruits, especially pears and applesauce. She likes cookies. She likes Baby Mum-Mums. (Teething wafers)
Honestly...I'm starting to think she just does not like baby food. I have given her tastes of my "big people" food and she seems to do really well. This has only been over the past couple of days AND now that she has teeth...WHY NOT???
Gerber, I do not care if you have Gerber Graduates up to age 5. Not doing it.
Now starts the transition to table food. I have decided. I don't care whose doctor says what. She's 11 months old. It's time.
No more bottles when she wakes in the morning. We will go straight to the kitchen and whip up a yummy breakfast. This is our first step. Wish us luck!
I ran across a couple of great table food recipes for baby:
