(I ADDED some pics below of Hunter eating his first rice cereal. I can't resist how fun it is to look back and see how similar or different their milestones are.)
At Blake's 4 month check up a couple of weeks ago, the whole rice cereal introduction was discussed. Our pediatrician said that it was more than fine to start Blake on rice cereal if we so chose. I originally thought not. With Hunter, I had waited until he was 6 months old to start. I guess in my mind, I was planning on following suit with Blake.
However... the past 5 nights have been rough. Friday night I barely slept at all while we were in Waco. Blake just wasn't going to sleep for more than an hour straight at a time. There's something about not wanting to bother everyone that makes you cave into feeding at every peep. Thinking it was a fluke deal, we figured that back home in his bed he would do better. So far, that has not happened. Last night and the night before, I wrote down the times I went to his room. Mostly to put the pacifier in, a time or two to feed him. Last night, it was 8 times!! 8!!! I even let him cry it out one of those rounds too. The boy has some willpower!!
Needless to say, I am rather zombie-like today. I'm tired and worn out- not thinking clearly at all. But, here are some of the pics of our first go-round with rice cereal. He seemed to like it a lot.
HUNTER at 6 months and his first taste of cereal. So fun!!
Are we sure about this???
