Day 1: Baby's First Food - The Awesome Avocado/牛油果[niú yóu guǒ]

Baby C (5M4D) got a taste of solid food for the very first time today 20 October 2016. I initially wanted to wait until she is 6 months old, but her rate of growth has decreased (although she hasn't lost any weight, still at 7.68 kg) and has been woken up at night every 2 hours. The nurse said that maybe this is a sign that she is hungry and ready for solids. So there goes my honeymoon period. Will be busy preparing food for her.

For baby before 6 months old, introducing solid should be treated more like food sampling, rather than full force eating solid food. This is because it is best that baby should get its food solely from breast milk for the first 6 months.

I chose avocado as her first food. I am treating it more like giving her food-sampling, rather than really feeding her solids, as I think it is best that she gets her food intake solely on breast milk until she is 6 months old. We were all excited to see her reaction, whether she would like it. Baby C seemed to like it. She finished the whole saucer :-)

You can read about why I have chosen avocado as my baby's first food and how I prepared it here.

Here is a picture of Baby C today :-)
