We tried rice cereal a few days ago. Chloe was not impressed. She was good at opening her mouth and trying it but she would make these faces like she was disgusted and then get the shivers after she swallowed. I mashed some bananas in but that still didn't help. By a few more bites she was pushing it away. We ended up just letting her play with the food and explore. At least it was entertaining for us and she had fun.
I think we will take a break for a week and try again but next time try avocado and banana. I want to try making her homemade baby food so we will see how that goes.
