Mom Confessions Mom Confessions
I breastfeed my daughter exclusively. SHe will be five months this coming up Tuesday. I take pride in her having nothing but breastmilk.
Yesterday, I was eating an apple. I had cut it up into eight pieces. Well she was in my lap like always lol, and I reached down to help my son get his sock on. I had the bowl in my hand of the same arm that I had wrapped around her. While I am helping him with his sock, she grabbed a piece of apple and started sucking on it.
I feel like a loser now lol. I know this will sound crazy to 99 percent of you all but it bothers me. I wasnt going to introduce ANYTHING before seven months. argh.

I understand how you feel. My son grabbed a cracker when he was 6 months old. I freaked out.

Same here! Would it bother you to maybe make an exception and let her have a big apple slice to suck on every now and then? I don't think there'd be any harm in it.

Quoting MalakbelLacuna:

my four and six year old do too. they eat apples all day long. we can go through a dozen apples in like two days.

Quoting EmmaGlenn20:

As, she was just curious! My daughter LOVES apples.

it would bother me.
I dont feel like her digestive system is ready for anything like that yet

It's because you were correct when you said 99% of us will think you're crazy.

Quoting MalakbelLacuna:

I understand. I can't really give you any other advice since my daughter was 6 months when she started on baby food and thrived on it. It's up to you, you know what's best for your DD :)

Lol I love how people take that as a sign

My 4 month old son grabs for my cell phone when it rings. Should he have his own? Lol


Quoting MalakbelLacuna:

interest in food doesnt mean they are ready lol

she will be five months on Tuesday




Quoting Anonymous:

I think you are overreacting.  How old is she?  If she is reaching for solids, then she may actually be ready for some kind of food.
