I have been debating feeding solids to Parker for sometime now. With his reflux and his prematurity I wasn't sure if he was ready. Well, I had received a free coupon in the mail for a box of baby cereal and some baby food jars from Beechnut, so I decided maybe we could give some cereal a try.
Here is the fun we had....
Parker's first food..Love how the box emphasizes "gentle texture."
Parker: "Mommy, this is exciting! What are we going to play?"
Me: "Yay! Parker gets to eat his first food!
Parker: "I'm not liking this game very much."
Me: "Doesn't that taste yummy Parker? Mmmmmm..."
Me: " Are you sure you don't want to try one more bite?"
Here is his reaction on video.
Make sure your speakers aren't set too high...Parker is loud
Parker: "Mommy, this is exciting! What are we going to play?" (lol, short-term memory)
Me(with enthusiasm): "Ok, lets try this again Parker."
Parker: "I don't know, all this seems eerily familiar."
Me: " See, that doesn't taste too bad."
Me: "Okay, Okay. I'm sorry, no more oatmeal..."
