So, I've been feeding Baby pretty much anything (within the pediatrician guidelines). I've been buying him the purees because he prefers them - prunes, bananas, applesauce, pears, sweet potatoes. I've also made him butternut squash, peas, and sweet potato. Now that he's a little older, I've shared a baked potato, sweet potato, baked chicken, and fruit. I've given him the veggies from my chicken soup (which he loves). He thoroughly enjoyed the chicken last night. Fruit can go either way. He prefers that pureed over chewing. I have a few recipes I'd like to try so I can get a leg up on freezing him some real food while he's transitioning to eating dinner with us. Yesterday, I gave him some small pieces of mandarin orange. He kept eating it, but he did not enjoy it. Then, to get back at me, he threw up all over the place. So, lesson learned. No to mandarin oranges.
