Ready to Start Solids?

Accordingly. babies are ready to start solids if he can hold his head up, can sit properly when supported, can make chewing motions such as moving his food back in his mouth and swallow, has gained weight and display curiosity like eyeing your meal when you're eating.

Usually at six months babies are ready to be introduced with solid foods such us rice cereals.

Since Xye had turned 6 months yesterday May 15, 2011 and already does the above signs, he finally tasted his first solid yesterday.

I had him sat on his inflatable chair first. He was so curious and kept looking at the spoon, he did not swallow the first 1st and 2nd spoonful of rice cereal (Nestle Cerelac).

After 2 tries I had to lay him down on a pillow inclining it about 45 degrees. He finally swallowed his 3rd spoonful of cereal, from then on he's too impatient to wait for the next. lol

Xye just had 1 tablespoon of rice cereal mixed on a 30ml of water on his 6th month birthday. Yippee!

Congratulations! for an empty bowl. lol
