We started with parsnips... man do those things taste terrible. Teddy wasn't impressed. I think I will do pumpkin next as that at least has some flavor.

But the goal right now is just for him to get familiar with the spoon and all that jazz so it doesn't matter that he ate less then a baby spoonful.
In Germany they recommend starting with veggies at 4 months. They used to encourage waiting until 6 months but the allergy rates didn't decrease so now they are back at 4 months. Teddy is 17 and a half pounds now and clearly wants to be eating with us so I am happy to start slowly introducing purees and porridges.

He also loves to drin
k water from a little cup. He sticks his tongue in and laps at it like a dog LOL. I'm hoping that he will be able to really eat purees for one meal a day in about a months time. I'll let you all know how it goes:)


  1. Parsnips were James first veggie too! My cousin had brought us some from Germany. I remember him liking them pretty well at the time, but I'm pretty sure he wouldn't eat them now. When he got a little older I really liked the ones made with potato, like zucchini and potato, or broccoli and potato, they don't make those in the US, but the consistency is really nice and thick!

  2. I can't believe how big he is getting!! Awesome with the starting of the food.

  3. He is such a doll and is getting big! :)
