There's a post in the February group about letting babies taste food (like ice cream...seriously??) and of course a ton of moms are already feeding solids... Anyway, it got me thinking about how we're planning to start solids and I'd like to get some input. I was thinking at 6 months, we'd start with steamed veggies. Small pieces that she can feed herself and mush in her mouth easily. I don't want to spoon feed. I personally think that when a baby can feed themselves is when they're ready for food, not before. We're going to let her decide if she wants to eat or not. If she doesn't like it, we won't push it.
So what do you all do for baby's first solids? Any favorites for first foods? Any general advice? Thanks!
