I'm sort of lost and have no idea where to start with BLW. What is a good first food to give?
My son is going to start solids in 2 weeks, and up until now he's had nothing but breast milk.
My pediatrician told me to start rice cereal at 6 months but I personally never understood the point of rice cereal despite researching it, so if anyone could clue me in on that too, would be much appreciated
Location: Country Western Australia (middle of nowhere!)
We never did rice cereal. Tried it once but LO looked disgusted and to be fair it tastes like wallpaper paste. We started slowly with chunks of softish fruit and veg like mango, banana, avacado etc. then tried toast, pasta and well , everything!
