1) is 6 months old, holds head up, tongue thrust reflex is gone (you can get her to swallow food/move it around in her mouth, can sit well supported.

2) some ppl say rice cereal as it is less likely to cause allergies or some ppl say meat because iron rich foods are most important. In reality the 6 -12 month period is all about them learning how to eat food - the milk is most important.

3) buy some organinc brown rice, pulverize it to dust in your blender.
Add it to a pot with some water, boil it until thick and mushy, cool it down and serve it up! (yes, that easy!)

Best of luck

Re: Dumb Question Sorry, but please HELP

we're discussing what to start with and I've found lots of info. on www.kellymom.com
and also www.wholesomebaby.com

we're starting with breastmilk butter LOL, I'm not ready for icky poop quite yet. he made faces the whole time but he did chomp a little and get some down
and soon I'll try making breastmilk yogurt
technically, they're a little more "solid"
