Re: I don't want baby's first food to be cereal, suggestions please :)
You could go the BLW route. MUCH easier. I made food for my first 2 (didn't know about BLW) and we did/are doing BLW with our newest. She started with avocados, just get nice ripe avocados and slice them and let baby go to town. We started at 8 1/2 months but you can start at 6 if you want. I saw no need to rush food at all this time around.
This was her very first time having solids
