Yesterday my baby girl had her very first taste of something other than breast milk. We set her up in her Bumbo and we fed her some porridge for the first time ever. She was so excited, her little hands were going and she was reaching for the bowl, it was like she knew what was coming and she wasn’t going to miss out on any of it.
She absolutely loved it and surprisingly enough got more in her mouth than anywhere else, which just goes to show that the Greek gene in her is strong because she likes food a lot!
On the 29th of this month my Nina will be a whole 6 months old. People keep telling me that time goes by so quickly and that babies grow so fast and I’m witnessing it first hand, I cannot believe that half a year has nearly passed since I was pregnant with her. It’s nuts!
I was super proud of her yesterday when she slurped down her 2 teaspoons of porridge, if she was participating in an under 6- month old eating competition, I have no doubt in my mind that she would of smoked everyone at the table. Soon enough she’s going to start on steamed veggies etc I’m so excited to see how she’s going to react.
Do any of you have any tips for me regarding this stage of a baby’s life? Any foods that your baby liked or loved?
