Our house has been a feeding frenzy lately. Baby H can not get enough of all the tasty stuff I am trying to feed her, and that makes me one happy mama. You see, I think I have been a little obsessed with feeding her since we started solids. I wanted her to love fresh, natural, healthy foods so badly. I fear having a child that is a picky eater or will only each chicken nuggets and mac n cheese.
I have been feeding her a combo of things. I made some of my own food (green beans, sweet potato, apples, pears, peaches, bananas, avocados) and I also get some from local baby food company Whirled Peas. They make fresh, organic food and deliver it to my office. It is amazing and a real life saver when I get busy. I also got a few Plum Organics pouches for her, and she really seems to like them. The spinach, peas and pear was a hit, and so was the mango. I just ordered some 6 packs of different flavors for her online. Amazon has the best prices if you don't have time to shop sales at local stores like me.
I also had to get her a high chair the other day. After much debate, I decided on the Fisher-Price Space Saver. It is pretty much like a high chair but without the legs, you strap it to your own chair. And later it converts to a booster. I really loved the OXO chair, and thought about the IKEA one that everyone has, but we just don't have much room and I thought the Space Saver would be a better choice. I have friends that have it and they love it. And I think H loves it too, as evidenced by her big grin.
Here she is eating an asparagus spear. She was eyeballing it on my plate, so I decided to just give it to her. She gummed it for like 15 minutes and ate all the insides out. I hope the means she is going to be a good eater when she grows up!
