Taking it slow with baby rice
If Baby Girl remembers what we were taught on the starting solids course we attended together, she must be confused. On Day 4, she was meant to get to taste something exciting like pear puree. But she didn’t.
Instead, she’s stuck with baby rice. In her first week of starting solids, she’s only had a few teaspoons of baby rice in the late mornings. I’ve packed a pot with a teaspoon of Hipp Organic Baby Rice and a bottle with a bit of expressed milk and taken Baby Girl out for the day.
Mixed together with milk the rice looks like thickened milk served with a spoon. It’s not been a huge hit. She didn’t exactly seem to take much baby rice on the first three days.
That’s why I contacted our course instructor Vicki Scott and asked about taking it slow with Baby Girl. Since she started solids early due to her reflux, there was no rush to introduce fruit purees.
But that means someone has a rather limited menu. And that someone is usually very fussy about how things are done.
