After a couple weeks of a baby no longer sleeping through the night because of hunger, and after about amonth of intent staring at us while we ate, and after the okay from her pediatrician, we gave Joci her first few bites of rice cereal today.
As expected, the first few bites came right back out. I decided to show her how it's done. Bad idea. So gross! I gagged and made yucky faces. I'm glad she likes it, I could never eat the stuff - formula is so nasty! After a few bites, Joci began figuring it out. We probably only fed her ten spoonfuls and probably four of them were swallowed. She opened her mouth wide and grabbed the spoon to help guide it to her mouth. She definitely gets the idea.
