Well.... Tomorrow is the big day!!! We are making our own organic butternut squash to feed our 6 mo!!! I am excited, but super nervous!!!! He is ready, I just have to man up and grow a pair, and shove it in his mouth. Did any of you have this much anxiety about starting foods?

no... no anxiety except that other people would feed dd something I didn't want her to have!! We did baby-led solids so it was slow starting and easy :) Good luck!

How about even less issue...manup and put it on his tray and let him feed himself? Shoving food in a childs mouth is NOT a good way to start solids.  YES I was nervous but I knew if he could feed himself he was ready

I like this idea! .... Should I just but the bowl with a little bit if runny squash in front of him? Or how did you do this?
