It's been almost two weeks since Claire has been eating solids and she's doing great with them. The first few times trying the cereal were just ok. I could tell Claire wasn't quite sure what I expected her to do, and she never seemed all that thrilled with the cereal. Not that I blame her...She would hold the cereal in her mouth and then slowly spit it all out.
After a few tries we added some carrots and that has been going much better. She always grimaces with the first bite, but I could tell right away she was swallowing it, which I was never sure of with the cereal.
Now, she's eating the carrots like a champ. She opens her mouth for bite after bite and I know for sure that more is getting in her than on her!
