So Hunter doesn’t begin weaning until at least 6 months old.. which is in a couple of weeks. But I heard that exclusively breastfed babies often refuse the spoon and/or take ages to eat from a spoon because it’s just so so different to breastfeeding. That was news to me! So I thought we might as well get him used to what a spoon is and having it in it’s mouth…
I bought the Combi baby spoon and squeezed some breastmilk onto it (maybe 2 drops at a time), and stuck it in his mouth. Gave him the spoon with breastmilk about 5 times and he took to it OK (though his expressions were kinda hilarious) – I think it gave Chris and I a way bigger kick than it did to him ;) I figure we’ll do that every day or so to get him used to the whole idea.. so that in a couple a weeks we can transition to his Organic baby rice cereal (from Australia!) and hopefully he’ll handle that well. Errrr.. fingers crossed!
