We decided to try rice cereal with Emma and Joshua on Saturday, which was their 4 month birthday. The reviews? Mixed.
He seemed to catch on really quick. And once he did, watch out! He now opens his mouth when he sees the spoon and if I take too long getting the spoon to his mouth, he starts yelling. He also does this thing that he does with the bottle and its hysterical. When the spoon (or bottle) gets close to his mouth and he is hungry, he attacks it like a dog would attack a steak (its the only way I can think to explain it) He moves his head from side to side and then moves in to eat.
She is not really enjoying the cereal. I watched her closely and she can swallow it but she apparently hates the taste and probably the texture of it. She is also too interested in her thumb to take the time to eat. I put the food in her mouth and she makes a horrible face, swallows and then shoves her thumb back in her mouth. The problem is that she still has food in there so the food ends up squirting out everywhere. Again, hysterical!
