I have been going back and forth with the idea of solids with Mckinlee. She is so tiny, and she has seemed really content with just my breast milk. We also have her acid reflux under control, and I really do not want to stir that back up. I was basically set on holding off solids with her until 6 months, but at 4 months the ugly 4 month growth spurt/sleep regression revealed its ugly head, and it had me second guessing myself. I tried giving her one extra feeding a day before bed in an attempt to keep her from waking at night. It did not really work. I read that sometimes starting solids helps with this stage, and I thought I would give it a try.
We geared up Mckinlee, camera, bumbo, and cereal and anticipated her first bite. Lets just say little miss did not have it! She was not at all a fan of the consistency (even though it was super thin), and she kept gagging. We probably only gave her three spoon fulls before we stopped. She was just not ready.
