This week into our journey with solids, Tux tries red bell peppers.
We figured he should try a different coloured vegetable. We’ve been going green thus far so thought we’d try something not green. He’s starting to get the whole holding in hand and shoving into mouth thing now.
What I have learned and this isn’t for everyone as everyone’s baby is different but it’s easier for him to hold the food and feed himself when it’s long and not small tiny pieces. Basically it gives him a handle to hold on to. He has teeth and not going to lie, sometimes we get scared when he shoves the whole thing in his mouth but he’s been pretty good at spitting it back out as well. We have also learned not to over steam the veggies so that it automatically disintegrates in his hands, having it a little bit tougher seems to be more enjoyable for him as he can gnaw on part of it. He hasn’t quite figured out how to deal with the part that’s in his palms.
And the baby eating solids adventure continues. Next week, what will he be having in Taiwan?
