Solid Food
I have a confession.  When it was time to start introducing solid foods to my first child, I was terrified!  Up until then I was nursing and that was so easy and I didn't have to think about food.

I decided I was going to make it myself.  I'm sort of a do-it-yourselfer for most things anyway which I'm sure annoys my husband sometimes!  I didn't exactly have a guide to follow but I recently found this amazing meal plan for weaning your baby.  I thought I would post it to hopefully help other parents who might be looking for  smart ideas of what to feed their baby for their first bites of solid food.  It's a huge step and if there was only one thing you HAVE to get right is the foods you feed your child.

This great find is from Andrew Saul.  I've posted "Monday" but if you like this and want to see the whole 7 day meal plan just click on the link.  He also makes some great comments at the bottom so be sure to read those too!

(Scroll down to my Comments at the bottom of the page.)

It is very important to take care of baby food. At the early stage we can not give them any thing. I think it is very important to give them proper nutrition

Good post !!An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this matter here on your web page.

The title of your write-up is very eye catchy which holds an individual to read till the very end of your blog. Every new paragraph increases the interest of a reader.
