A little over a week ago we started Eleanor on cereal. We had been struggling with her sleeping all night and decided that she was close enough to six months to see if hunger was an issue.
She seems to be a very hungry baby, scarfing down two cereal meals every day as though she’s been doing it since she was born. With the boys we did baby-led weaning and skipped the pureed cereal/food stage so spoon feeding is a bit new for us but it is worth the learning curve if it helps her at night (and it seems to be).
Since starting cereal we have tried other solids. Her first food was sweet potato and we’ve tried blueberries, banana, hamburg (meatball), cantaloupe, peas, and corn since.
I’m not sure yet if she’ll be a picky eater or not but it seems she will definitely eat a lot!
