First attempt at introducing Lucas to solid foods involved a little bit of rice cereal. I did what the box said, 1Tbsp of cereal to 4-5 Tbsp of formula mixed up in a bowl. Overall, I probably got him to take half of it, and even then maybe only half of that he swallowed with the rest ending up on his bib or all over his chin. Good thing we gave him his bath afterward and not before.
I even tried to give him the last half in his bottle, which from my readings is not recommended because "they" want baby to associate the food with a spoon not the bottle. But yeah, that didn't work so well either. He was either full, as I gave him some regular formula in between attempts, or he was just not fooled. Oh well, we shall attempt again this evening. This weekend I plan on picking up some veggies for him to try. Squash? Sweet Potato?
I will also say that he had one more bottle before bed time. Hubby put him to bed around 10pm (I was already asleep by 9pm after having my Theraflu). I woke up to him continuously coughing in the first hour. When I kept checking him he was sleeping on his side and looked peaceful even through the awful coughing noises. So Hubby put him in his "hammock" so he'd sleep inclined and I never heard another noise out of him. By 6am I had to actually wake him up instead of him rousing himself. He pretty much slept through his diaper change too. I'd say he slept good!
