My LO is 8 and a half months actual and 7 months adjusted. She's eating a little bit of solids everyday. Homemade, no cereal, and only at night. We started introducing meat recently. I know food before one is just for fun, but if you are going to work your way up to one, surely there is a lot of eating that has to happen! Should we start feeding twice a day? I know to breastfeed before solids.
I'd love to have her eat some cake at her first birthday, would that be a bad idea? (seeing as we choose not to give her cereal).
Another question, can we start offering water in a sippy cup? My mother always says at this age I drank out of their glasses and already used my own sippy cup. What other fluids can we offer? I'm not sure about fruit juices as I read it could be bad for their teeth. What about tea? Should I stick with baby spesific products or is that just a sales gimic like puried-bottled food?
