We started solid food. Woot! Woot!
I know some people wait awhile before starting their baby on solids, but Miss E. has been waiting for food. At four months, her eyes followed every move hubby’s fork made and then some.
So on the eve of her 5 month birthday, out came the baby bowls, spoons and the single grain oatmeal.
SHE INHALED IT (and promptly slept eleven hours!) Too bad the sleep thing hasn’t continued…we’re back to being up at least once a night.
We’ve since had some sweet potatoes and a little bit of banana. Tonight we’re going to have some peas, which always look so incredibly disgusting to me, but Bug always loved them. (And dudes, check out her bib. It’s from Target and says “Star of Mommy’s Blog” LOVE.)
Next on our list? We’re breaking out the Beaba Babycook.
I didn’t make as much food with Bug as I thought I would. I had every intention of doing it and we did some….but not enough. With Miss E. we’re going to do better. It’s not like it’s hard. Cut up some food, add it to the Babycook, put the water in the reservoir and steam. When that’s done, you put the steamed contents into the bowl and blend. Simple simple. I’ve already envisioned some yummy zucchini purees and homemade applesauce.
Today’s Launch Week giveaway is the most AMAZING yet! In honor of Miss E. starting to eat solid food, I am thrilled to be able to give away a Beaba Feeding Suite. This prize includes a Beaba Babycook, set of multiportions (perfect for storage) and a set of Beaba’s First Stage Spoons.
Retail Value = OVER $200!

My former employer, Scandinavian Child, provided the Beaba products to me at no cost. I received mine as a baby shower gift. All opinions are my own and are, in no way, attributed to SCI.
