Remington has been eating solids for about a month now. Started with rice cereal mixed with milk, but it got difficult pumping that much so I switched to water. I can't believe he tolerated that tasteless gruel for so long! We moved onto veggies after a week of that. I decided long ago that I was committed to making my own baby food, for economic reasons and because I know exactly what's going into his tummy. I actually look forward to the long process of steaming, pureeing, straining, freezing and storing Remington's food. I enjoy experimenting and tasting all the mush. Today I made plums, peaches, apples, green beans, and broccoli, all of which he has yet to try. I flash freeze puree portions in ice cube trays, then label and date freezer bags and store. Then when Remi Boy is ready to eat I just pop one in the microwave and mix with rice cereal or water. So convenient and delicious.
