So, Jax had his first taste of "real" food today,
well, he had his first taste of something other than breastmilk - rice cereal... mixed with breastmilk. Andy and I were sure he would devour it. But, much to our surprise after only a few tastes he began making "bitter beer face" and letting it run out of his mouth. After repeated attempts I gave up. So, he doesn't like rice cereal. When Ava was a baby I was told I had to start her on rice cereal, but apparently, now, it's not a necessity. Many doctors actually suggest starting babies out on fruits and veges because they don't terrorize the digestive system like rice cereal. Good to know.
Mom, what is this junk?!
I think I'll wait the extra month though. I don't think he's going to starve. The little squish definitely has enough fat stores to hold him over. And then, we'll give peas a try. I don't know though, he'll have a few teeth by then (if these darn things will ever actually come through) and Jax is a Kleinman... he may just go straight for the steak.
