We couldn't believe it when the pediatrician told us to start practicing with cereal when we went for Bree and Betsy's 4-month check-up. She said she wanted them to be well-practiced so they would be fully ready to eat by the time they turn 6 months old. I thought, "There's no way these girls are going to take anything from a spoon yet!" Nonetheless, I bought some new spoons and a box of rice cereal, and we decided to attempt it last night.
Bree took to it like a fish to water. Ate a decent amount of cereal and even tried doing it herself.
Betsy wasn't so sure. It was difficult to get her even to open her mouth. We'll give it a week or so before we try again.
