Glad it's going well Kat. I'd go for trying him with sloppier foods! It's a lot of fun and in my experience they get really excited about it all
Our most interesting news to report is that a while ago Alasdair had a reaction to strawberries (first time he'd had them) and I was advised not to give them to him for a couple of months. I had a go at giving him them again on Saturday and he wouldn't put them in his mouth. He talked to them, he picked them up but they were not food to him. I'm not going to force him to try them again, he probably knows best and he eats plenty of other fruit and veg!
I gave him a mushed up rusk today - he loved it! Will try him with some other stuff, now I know he can handle it. Any suggestions?
spag bol maybe? or I sometimes make my version of carbonara for Alasdair. I make a cheese sauce (flour, butter, milk, cheese) and put it with fusilli pasta and add whatever vege I have in. Try him with cereal! it's messy but Ally loves it and it makes a nice change from toast for brekkie. Alasdair has had cheerios (obviously not the honey kind!), rice crispies and branflakes. He's liked all of them. I usually add some fruit to make it a little more exciting.
It was so lovely today - I met a friend to have lunch in the park. While I was having my food, I occupied Oliver with a few pieces of apple. Not only did it mean I had peace while I ate, but my frined was gobsmacked!!!
Another quick question though - do your LO have a milk straight after? Oliver seems to go as long as he wants to then, all of a sudden he's had enough. He starts crying, holding his arms out to me (he's started doing this now, when he's had enough of something and wants rescuing!!) and demanding milk. Is it good to make a habit of BF straight after every single solid feed? Or will he grow to expect them both and not have one without the other?
Perhaps I'm reading to much into this and it's far to early to be worried about this sort of thing.
