Cedro Loves Cereal!

Cedro is now 5 and a half months old!  We have been discussing starting him on solid foods and we figured tonight was as good a night as any, especially since his Uncle Wahley was in town visiting from NYC.  So we gave Cedro his first mini bowl of rice cereal mixed with breast milk.  He loved it so much that he started to feed himself!  We’re so proud of him!  This is his first taste of solid food (if you don’t count the time his papa ILLEGALLY gave him a little nibble of a grape while I was on a girls night out a few weeks ago).

It goes without saying that both Brian and I definitely want our son to grow up with an appreciation for food and dining.  For the past week, Cedro has been practicing holding his feeding spoons.  He’s been LOVING holding them and nibbling on them.  If your baby is in the same boat and is about to start eating solids, I highly recommend these spoons!  They’re a terrific size and shape with safe, soft spoon tips that are BPA-free.  I picked them up at The Pump Station store in Santa Monica — one of my favorite baby stores and resources!  I couldn’t find them on The Pump Station website, but you can get more info at the Vital Baby website.  Also picked up some Vital Baby Press and Pop Freezer Pots since Brian’s planning on making Cedro’s baby food.  We used one as his first feeding bowl tonight.

We’re so excited to start giving Baby C solid food now.  It has become very clear that he’s interested in eating something beyond breast milk.  He has been watching us eat, totally mesmerized.  It’s definitely time!  He is pretty much 20 pounds now!!!  I still want to breastfeed him, but I think the solid food will help him sleep more soundly through the night.  Tonight’s milestone is the first step in our goal to sleep train him.  We shall see!

Hope you enjoy the video.  It’s long, but I know you Cedro fans out there can’t get enough of him!

    Go Cedro! We just started V on solids (well, a few weeks ago), and she’s not as enthusiastic. Loves the spoon. Hates the food.

    I guess our dreams of her being a chef are ovah! haha
