Quoting Averyís momma:" So my son is 4 1/2 months old and I have been feeding him rice cereal since he was 4 months. It is going ... [snip!] ... oatmeal? Also was wondering about making my own food for him. I wonít start until 6 months but can anyone tell me how to do it?"
i just took any fruit or veggie (one at a time) and mashed it up. if it was something like broccoli or carrots or sweet potatoes, i cooked it, then mashed it. once she was used to the rice cereal, i added it to the rice cereal at first, and then cut the amount of rice cereal until it was just the straight fruit or veggie. i didn't do anything special really, and it was easy. she used to love sweet potatoes, bananas, and avocados. now, at 6 years old, out of those 3 things, she only likes bananas, lol.
