So Olivia turned 4 months a few weeks ago and we have been working on spoon feeding. The first time I tried to feed her rice cereal I swear she thought I was trying to poison her. And it didn't go so well.
Well since this first time she continues to DESPISE rice cereal or oatmeal. She will arch her back and try her hardest to get out of the Bumbo and away from the cereal!
So I decided to get out the Baby Bullet that I bought last weekend and make her some baby food that she will hopefully actually eat. Before I used it I was reading through the manual and my first impression was "Wow this seems really easy!" Not only does it tell you how to use the baby bullet but it also has a cookbook for baby and it is divided up into age categories (4-6 months, 7 mon, 8 mon, etc) so you know what to feed them at what age. It also has what foods are best to try first, which ones are no allergy or low allergy risk and then what food NOT to feed baby for the first year. This Baby Bullet is just awesome! It is easy to use and the directions are simple. And you can make your baby food for the whole week in about 5 minutes or less. I think one of the best things is that it has storage cups that you can choose the date you made it and then it has a storage tray too that you can also put in the freezer to store more food.
I am definitely recommending this to any of my friends with babies that will be starting spoon feeding soon!
FYI - we made bananas and she LOVED them! Now that she doesn't have a meltdown every time we try to feed her we have to work on her tongue so she doesn't spit it out.
