So far, I have done the following things to wean myself:
- I bought a box of rice cereal, the recommended first food to introduce because almost noone is allergic to it. Now my husband teases me almost every day saying "Let's feed William some of that cereal." Nooooo! NOT YET!
- I put him in his high chair when I am eating so that he can "get used to it".
- I feed him his vitamin drops with a spoon. In theory, by the time he gets to real food he'll be a spoon pro and I'll have no problems. Actually, he already takes the spoon like a pro and really doesn't need any practice.
- Today Adam fed William some water with the spoon, and I made no protest.
If all goes well, I should be ready for solid foods by the 15th.
