Re: First veggie/fruit
We started my DS on solids this past week. We offered him bananas the first half of the week and then avocado the second half. He loved both. Avocado is a great first food. It is rich in iron and easy to digest. I started my oldest DD on squash and started DD2 on banana. We skipped the whole rice cereal thing with all our kids. As for not giving them a fruit first due to it being sweet...breast milk has a sweet taste. So in my opinion they have already experienced the sweet taste. DS is going to try butternut squash tomorrow. YUM!
