Erin's First Meal
I have been known to follow a more "non-traditional" way of doing things... I home-birth, I make most of our foods, household cleaners, etc from scratch. I made 90% of Patrick's baby food...
But, I'm not planning on making baby food this go around. I will if I need to, but I figure, if Erin is really, truly ready for food, she will be able to handle "normal" foods in their softened form. But, no watering down, no pureeing... So, today, just shy of 6 months old, Erin got her first "proper" meal... apple sauce (unsweetened, of course). She has been showing interest in real foods, and I figured, "Why not?" Here's what she thought.
