We did it. And it was at least a moderate success. Sam had her first non-milk, non-formula food today! We mixed up some rice cereal with formula, and fed it to her with a spoon. A real (baby) spoon! It’s hard to tell how much she actually took, as a great deal of it landed on her bib, her clothes, her parents, her chair, her floor, etc. (Not really all that bad.) She seemed interested in it. She watched the spoon, she grabbed at it, she chewed it. I have some pictures, and a small video I’ll add when I get a chance.
