I had tried rice cereal at 4 months with Lily, but she definitely wasn't a fan at all. I tried mixing it with water, formula and breast milk but she wasn't having it.
Last night while eating dinner Lily just about pulled my plate into her lap. I decided she was ready to try baby food. So I stopped at the store and got her some bananas and pears. She did SO well for her first time. I was beyond shocked.
I gave her some more bananas tonight and she at about 1/3 of the container. Minimal funny faces and the only time she spit it out was when she was trying to get the hang of how to swallow it...and when she was getting full. Aw...my baby is growing up!
