And so it's begun! You know how it is, you try to do everything for your second child that you did for your first, Right? Or in my case, everything I did for my first I'm doing for my second, third and fourth!!!
I pulled out the Baby Bullet and dusted it off. I remember being so excited with Kanon, that I was making his baby food. So of course I wanted to at least try it for the girls. On one hand it would be easier and healthier to make my own baby food, plus when am I getting to the store to buy anything? On the other hand it would be easier just to buy food, open a jar and call it a day!!! I'd save time, cooking, cleaning the Baby Bullet, but then I realized, I not only can do both, but I needed to do both!!!
Apparently there is no more starting with cereal although I will need to introduce it at some point. I needed to start with feeding once a day. Pick a time when they'd be interested, but not starving...LOL! This time varies from day to day. I started the girls with Butternut Squash, fancy right?! I boiled precut squash pieces with water, then Baby Bulleted (is that even a word?) them. It came out super smooth. I strapped the girls into their chairs and, well, let's just say it's been introduced... LOL, can't say they loved it. Brook was the least impressed and by the time I got all of them strapped in and tasting the food, I can see they were a little annoyed. I followed with a bottle and still considered it a success. My power of positive thinking.
Two days later, I did the same thing with pears. I peeled most of the skin off but left a little, thinking that's where the nutrients are. The texture didn't come out as smooth, but I figured where I lacked texture, I'd make up for in taste. Seemed like they liked the taste much better but still prefer the bottle. The sweet potatoes I brought went bad and the apples I was going to make got eaten by two snacking gentlemen, that will remain nameless ;). I saw a window for me to purchase my next few options, when I went to Target yesterday. I brought all natural prunes, bananas, green beans and carrots.
The carrots today, were well received, so we may be onto something. Beau and Bailey enjoyed it better than Brook. I'll keep pushing the baby food, it would be nice to slow down on the formula, but I'll take things how they come. Their adjusted age is 4 months so patiences is key, plus I know there's a learning curve for them!
Ohhh and let's not forget Bryant put a raspberry ice pop on Beaus lips, not sure what food group that is, so hopefully she's not allergic to any of those 10 ingredients, SMH!!!
