Today was the day I started Baby on solids.
I mixed up some baby rice cereal with cold boiled water, according to the instructions on the package, but it looked a little lumpy - sort of like badly made porridge. But that didn't faze me because it's really only supposed to give her a taste of non-milk food.
She opened her little mouth as soon as she saw her specially-bought Tommee Tippee silicone-tipped spoon approach, loaded with yummy rice-y goodness. Obviously she was expecting something tasty.
But I could tell this was going to be a work in progress when I watched her face crumple as though to say "what the...?" and slowly work the stuff out of her mouth with her tongue (the rest of it came up when I put her down for "tummy time").
Tomorrow I'm going to try mixing it with a little breast milk to see if she likes it any better.
