First day on baby rice
We were in family club Purple Dragon and I had Baby Girl on my lap. I mixed up a teaspoon of baby rice with a bit of expressed breast milk and tried feeding it to her.
The problem was that Baby Girl seemed to think her new Philips Avent soft tip weaning spoon was a toy to chew on. After a while, she started sucking on it and then winced when she got a taste of the baby rice. She then decided she wanted to hold the spoon herself, and it didn’t take long before it landed on the floor.
I took out a spare spoon and tried scooping up the rice that was covering her entire chin. It kept coming back out, but after around twenty minutes I tried convincing myself that she had probably managed the two teaspoons she was meant to have.
Grandma N, our dedicated weaning photographer, was not so sure though. And if I were to go by the way Baby Girl soon afterwards made it sound like she was starving again, I guess Grandma N might have been spot on.
