We have been shoving prilosec down his gullet since he was 1 week! Shelley, I think everyone worries whether their babies are getting a balanced diet!
Here are some guidelines on how to get it right. She has learnt about her favourites already and she is always prepared to give everything a go!
Then I noticed a rash starting on her hands and face, so I immediately took away the peanut butter and wiped her down. We happened to have some from a camping trip, and it probably kept my son alive until we could get him to the hospital.
After a year old you perform the modified heimlich manuever. All babies have the gag reflex, all adults have it to, its just much further back for adults. I am even eager to say that it seems to me he is not ready for a food. I am terrified now!!!! She was staring at me, and was grabbing her hands towards me.
She did not give a best age to start solids but she believed in getting babies accustomed to whatever the family will be eating.
I plan on trying it with my 4 month old son when he is ready. He mostly just plays with the food if i let him do it himself so doesnt really get much down.
This way is so much easier than the way i fed my daughter and meal times have really become a family affair with bub included. So my question to you is, what are the foods babies like most that he, with only two bottom teeth, will be able to cope with?
But as a parent you choose what works for you. Giving him a taste of mashed potatoes at Christmas sent us to the ER.
The one my daughter took to the most was a Doidy cup got mine in John Lewis. She seemed to enjoy the experience of having bread crumbs on her thumb when she sucked it.
So, I give his food in his bottle with the formula. It was also good to start with the chewing as it helps the tongue movements so speech will benefit from it and since I am bringing up my children bilingual this is perfect!
Anyway, just wondered what peoples thoughts are on what to do now. Thank you:
