Last week at Eddie's 4 month check-up, the pediatrician said that we could, if we wanted to, start Eddie on food. Of course that meals he could start with rice cereal. Even though he is only 4 months, we decided to give it a try. We figure that we will take things slowly. So far he has had it about 5 times. He's still adjusting/learning on how to eat. Once he starts shoving the bib in his mouth after a spoonful of cereal, we usually call it quits. I am not in a huge rush to try and get him to eat food, but at the same time, it's been fun to watch him learn and adjust to a spoon!
