Food: Starting Solid foods…

Big milestone here…at 7 1/2 months old.

Yes, we are ready…I delay feeding solid food till now…Mika is breastfed exclusively for 7 1/2 months old…

I have been researching…more info  from Kellymom… introduction of solid foods too early may have certain risk factors…why delay solids

Why introduce solid too early if your baby is continuing to gain weight, and grow as he/her should…breastmilk is the best source, and ideal food for healthy growth and development…that what he or she needs most…

…and I trust my own intuition…when the time is right😉

Here are some signs that we are ready…

Mika can sit up well without support…

Teething…

Mika is trying to chew…

eager to participate in mealtime…

able to grab food (or anything) and put it in his mouth…

First, we tried green pea…big mistake…he is allergy to ;(  Got eczema likes red patches rashes around his mouth for a day…poor baby…my bad, mama’s fault…

I felt so bad that I didn’t do my homework…Pea is one of most-allergenic foods according to Dr. Sears…and should not be introduced to infant till 12 months old…

Making this mistake, made my heart cry…I called my mom…I need my mom’s advice or raising Mika…all the time…on everything…

Yes, mom is always right…apple is the best solid food to start…

Last week, we start with organic apple…got from wholefoods market (my favorite store)…I am more careful this time…start with one to three spoon(s) for 2 days…safe😉

This week, we have organic squash…yellow squash…safe😉
Now, Mika eats 2/3 yellow squash for lunch, and 1 small apple at dinner time…of course, I steam and puree the squash, and puree the apple🙂
No canned baby food for Mika…why canned food, making our own baby food is much fun, healthier, and yummmm…
Next week, we will go for carrot, and banana to follow😉
