So, I know. Don't rush things, right? I mean, the breastfeeding poops smell like chocolate cake and skittles (yeah right) and eating is so neat and clean right now *she says wearing her ridiculously milk stained bra sleeping in her ridiculously milk-stained sheets*. And considering he's such an easy nurser and just loves to relax and eat without me having to lay down on my side with my feet in a specific position and the planets aligned (okay, so not the feet and the planets -- but seriously, it's HARD to nurse laying on your side at PF Changs).
HEH. You get my drift.
If I'm not home during the day, he doesn't really eat very much.
And so, I just wonder. Is it time for a little food?
He's sitting up extremely well, and he's grabbing at everything that passes by his face. Of course, that includes ice cream, water, and my computer.
According to my fabulous pediatrician, the one who guilted me a for a good 20 minutes about not giving my son all 2,401 shots at his 4 month visit, he doesn't need food yet since he's clearly doing well with breastmilk. (Clearly would be his 20lb 28 inch frame). But then, I hear big babies might like a little food to nibble on.
Let's be clear. I don't want to clean up food messes NOR do I want to deal with diaper stank. But I don't want to starve my kid (I know he won't technically starve people). My daughter was not ready until about 7-8 months and so I happily waited to feed her. But this kid seems ready. I think.
So, what do you think? When did you start your kid on food?
Tonight I'll be interviewing blogger Vicky as well as the couple and psychologists behind eHarmony's new program for married couples -- eHarmony Marriage. We're talking about what happens to your marriage after the kids arrive. I'm still trying to figure out what the heck happened to mine.
