My 5 month old has been launching herself towards my plate every time I eat, showing interest in food for over a month already. ive been holding her off trying to wait until she is 6 months to introduce food, however, this morning I reheated some pinto beans and as she was lunging towards my plate I thought to dip the back of my spoon inthe beans and give her a taste. She loved it, so I continued to dip (now a baby spoon) into the beans and fed her until she turned away from it. I began to wonder, I hope the beans are easy enough for her to digest. I did not give her any actual beans, so no skins or anything like that. I was only dipping the spoon in and pulling it out with some of the soft watery mushed up beans. Someone please tell me that I didnt just screw up. Hahah. She was so happy with her first little bites of food, I hope it doesnt end up hurting her later today.
