Ok, a question for moms who breastfeed ecologically and skip the cereal...
Much information has permeated our culture about how our babies need rice cereal, etc etc. I don't believe any of that, I think my baby can have table food once she's able to pick up it (she's 5 1/2 months, she'll be there probably in the next 3-4 weeks or so), and she can have meat for iron content when she's ready. You know, the way we USED to do things before big business invented baby food.
But knowledge has been lost! What do you give them? Should I cut up a banana? A finely diced cooked carrot? Should I let her snatch food from my plate? Does anyone know? What did our great-grandmothers do? I'm having trouble finding this information, the cycle of wisdom is broken!
I need a really great resource!
