Savanna started eating solid food 2 or 3 weeks ago. So far she has had butternut squash, yam, sweet potato, carrots, broccoli, avocado, peas, chickpeas, and applesauce. I buy her organic produce, steam and puree them. She would generally eat anywhere between 3 to 6 tablespoons of food at each meal.
At most meals, I also put some cheerios on her tray for her to play with. She enjoys swiping them around, and sometimes actually manages to put one in her mouth. Although every time she gets one in her mouth, she would spit it back out.
Savanna took to solid food pretty quickly. She seems to enjoy it. I love seeing her face smeared with food. Somehow that look is so much cuter on a baby than an adult.
