trying out this food thing
we tried out rice cereal with cayden last weekend. overall, i'd say that it went pretty well. it took a few tries for him to figure out what he needed to do with it.
push it back out the mouth? hmmm, nope. mush it around in my mouth? getting closer. swallow it? yes! that's it! oh, wait, now i think i'm gagging. what is this stuff they're shoving down my throat?
it was quite the experience, and we quickly learned that no shirt under the bib was a good idea. this stuff got everywhere! his hair, the bouncer, his pants, the floor – you name it and it was probably there.
since then, we've tried it one other time. he screamed like a banshee. so we stopped and gave him his bottle, and all was well. i think we might try again today. wish us luck that he's more receptive!
