28 March 2015: Olive ate solid food for the first time at 5.5 months.
This is what she had for the 2nd meal of the day, supplemented by breast milk:
I was expecting her to have just a couple teaspoons for the first time, but no, she finished the entire bowl. In the process, lunging herself forward to snatch the spoon and bowl, and whining when I was “slow” to feed. And no, I was not slow. I gave her one spoon after another only to stop when I had to restrain her hands.
Prep instructions: Add 4 dessert spoons of your baby’s usual warm milk to 1 dessert spoon of baby rice in a bowl and stir.
Actual prep Day 1: I added 4 table spoons of warm breast milk to 1 table spoon of baby rice.
Actual prep today, Day 5: I added 8 table spoons of warm breast milk (50ml) to 2.5 table spoons of baby rice.
Here is how the fat chick looks like for her first solid meal:
