Our Future Foodie has finished trying all the Gerber 1st Foods! When he turned 4 months, Avery was at the ‘Supported Sitter Stage’, where he could sit in a highchair and knows to open his mouth for a spoon, etc. This is when we started him on rice cereal, then every 4 days, we introduced a new food, allowing time for any allergies to show. Here’s a breakdown of Avery’s first foodie reviews:
Avery’s First Food(ie) Reviews:
We were lucky to not encounter any allergies and Avery loved everything he tried! I think we had more fun watching Avery try them than he did… I certainly became more talented myself, learning to feed him while video taping and taking pictures at the same time. It was tough, and some days I found crusty food on my phone from a previous meal, but it was worth sharing the fun videos and pictures with everyone!
That concludes the First Foods. Next? Second Foods (imagine that!). This stage begins around 6 months and is considered the ‘Sitter Stage’. Avery has been getting very close to sitting up for extended periods of time by himself, so we’re starting him on these new foods. How are they different from the ‘First Foods’? There are mixtures (aka apples & bananas) and new foods to try! We’ll share more photos as Avery tries these new foods in the upcoming months…
What foods does you little one love? Do you have a schedule or method for introducing new foods? Do you try the food too? We’ve tried a couple… and Vinay swears they’re pretty good… compared to Avery’s formula that is (which he can’t stand the smell of!)
