Hunter's first taste of cereal

Now that Hunter is 5 months we got the okay from his doctor to start rice cereal! We were sooo excited to be able to start giving him some more "solid" food! You see I think Hunter would drink as much formula as we let him if he had it his way. He drinks 6 oz every 3 to 3 1/2 hours but he loves to eat and cries when the bottle is empty!

So we sat him up in his bumbo seat and put the tray on his bib on. He was probably thinking what the hell is going on? I don't drink bottles in here! He is still working on sitting up completely in the seat. He still leans forward often. So while I was feeding him J helped him sit back. Overall he did really well. He seemed to really like it and attacked the spoon everytime it was in his mouth! I'd say it was a win!

first bite... his face lol
The only thing that made it difficult was that his doctor said to give it to him 1 hour before his bottle. This made things difficult because usually he is sleeping an hour before his bottle. So we kept him up longer than we normally would and he was a crank! I think he would have enjoyed the cereal if he weren't tired.

Last night we were out and about and he didn't nap between feedings so I decided we would just give him his rice cereal and then his bottle and then bed. Worked like a charm! He was soo much happier during the cereal because he was hungry! He actually cried when it was all gone! lol

Can't wait to start baby food next month!
