Everyone can flame away but ... I gave my kid a taste of food.
I'm ducking the things people are throwing at me right now. But I puréed a small bit of banana, and he ate maybe a teaspoon. We're starting slow (and skipping cereal all together). My momma instinct said he was ready, even though I wasn't planning on it until 6 months.
He's happy. I'm happy. That's what matters.
