[Personal] With baby starting solids, I've became a tad more busy trying to prepare fresh wholesome food for him so that he can enjoy mealtimes together with the family. I've tried to delay solids even though he can sit up at 5 months as I wanted his digestive system to mature a wee bit more before introducing food. Breastmilk is still be his main source of nutrition so why hurry? Although well-meaning friends & family tell me I can start at 4 months, I really just wanted to start later. Besides.... At 97 percentile, he's not in a hurry to eat more!! LOL.
I skipped the traditional cerealac route and started Elroy on steamed vegetables and fruits prepared fresh daily. Being a SAHM, I have the luxury to do so, but even if you're a FTWM, its also healthy to prepare weekly and then freeze then rest in portions for the following week.
