Re: Home made solids & breastmilk

We just fed whatever we were having that would grind up soft. Casserole, etc. But baby loves fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese, etc best. New guidelines do recommend getting meat in them asap, as babies run out of iron which is not easily gotten from milk. They used to think that iron fortified baby cereal fixed the problem, but now they are finding out that the iron in baby cereal isn't taken up by the body as well as the iron in meat. Our baby did ground beef very well, and it is pretty easy to incorporate into regular foods. By 6 mos he was eating chili as long as I didn't make it too spicy (if it's spicy, add in some yogurt or sour cream to help).
