Breakfast at Bailey's

Who knew starting solids would be so difficult...Our 1st attempt at rice cereal was last week and it was NOT successful, mainly due to the fact that I had the consistency all wrong. So after a few adjustments we tried again this time using just water...she wouldn't eat it. With some advice from friends and more adjustments we tried again with formula...she wouldn't eat it. So on Sunday morning I pulled out the pump and figure if this didn't work I was in trouble....

SHE ATE IT!

So she's a little high maintenance and will only eat her cereal with breast milk. It is a little inconvenient but I think I can manage, at least she's eating right? Even though we have had a couple of successful days I still don't think she's in love with the flavor of rice cereal, so today I decided to add Sweet Potatoes in the mix and they were a BIG hit!

yah I remember when we tried to start Ivy on her cereal. She would not take it so I did the breastmilk and she took once she got used to that then I started mixing it up with juice and water and then just water. THey just love that milk. hehe
Bailey is so cute
