Now that Anthony’s gotten a taste of solids, he is keenly interested in what I’m eating. Nestled in my arms at the dinner table last night, he complained angrily about not getting a bite of my DiGiorno’s Pizza.
It’s not that good, kid. Let it go.
Clearly my 6-month-old wants more solid food than he’s getting yet I’m afraid of overdoing it, especially with the processed stuff. So far he’s only had organic rice cereal and some pureed mango and banana. That’s it! You can tell that it’s been awhile since I’ve done the baby thing.
I know to introduce new foods gradually and keep away from such foods as peanut butter and honey. But what about bits of egg and bites of bread? He’s teething and wants to chew.
So I’m asking you for your opinion: Is six months too soon? At what age do you start giving your kids table food? In what order do you introduce things?
