First foods: Banana

Mads is eating solid food!

Luke smiles as he feeds MadelineWe decided to start about a week or so before Madeline turned 6 months old to introduce solid food because she was giving signs that she was ready.

Her first food?  Banana — mashed and mixed with breast milk.  She took it surprisingly well.  Luke has even helped to feed her, as you can see from the photo above.  It’s awesome seeing them interact.

We’ll be taking it slow on introducing new foods.  The next one will be avocado, and then we’ll move into white fruits.  I’m actually looking forward to making baby food again — it was so easy!
