It’s that time again. Time to start giving a new baby food. With Monkey Boy I was nervous. Before I ever thought of introducing any foods I read everything I could find. I made a checklist and a calendar and followed everything to a T. I waited until he was 6 months old and watched him closely for 5 of the 3-5 recommended days. I gave him every kinds of cereal available, then vegetables before ever considering fruits.
With Monkey Baby it’s second baby syndrome. When the doctor recommended at his 4 month well baby check up that we should start introducing cereal and foods for the iron and vitamins I was ready to jump in. This time there is no method to the madness. I still wait 3 days in between new foods however this time it’s a crazy mix of cereals, fruits and veggies. I have a list on my phone of foods he’s tried but I have no idea what’s coming next.
I do plan on making all of his food, just like I did for Monkey Boy but this time there will be a more relaxed nature to it. I wonder if this is because he’s the second Monkey or simply because I’m a little older and wiser?
