Wow, Catherine! That is fantastic! Way to go Chloe! Are you starting her on rice cereal yet?

Nancy, I'm waiting until she snatches my toast out of my hand![;)] Seriously, I prefer to wait until the last possible minute. I have a history of exzema and allergies and the girls have the exzema too. I feel that the longer I delay exposure to food allergens the better. It's also so much easier when the kid really wants to eat the food and can play with the spoon. I learned that with Lucy. Finn (1st time mommie etc.) I couldn't wait to try him and it was so messy and sloppy etc. As a result, I always skip the rice cereal and start them on a mixture of oatmeal cereal and apple sauce. Our first pediatrican recommended that, he claimed that rice cereal was cruel and unusual punishment and after my first taste I agreed with him. I'll try and hang on for another month then go for it.

I agree! Our dr. asked us to start Janie but we have to use a cereal plunger because she can't get the food to the back of her mouth yet. But, she is progressing and I bet she will be using the spoon soon. (Luckily I have older ones to employ for the job [:D])
