I decided to wait a week before trying her on something else. At 19 weeks old I tried her on some baby porridge. Mabel had no problem in gobbling it up. Yes some bits did come out of her mouth and it was messy, but that’s what you expect. She was just enjoying this new type of food and I was very happy she was taking to it really well. Even the next day when she had a rusk again, she managed to eat 1/3 of it. Wow.
Over the past few weeks, I have been trying her on something every day, whether it be porridge, a rusk, a piece of melon, some banana, avocado, carrot, parsnip, roast potato, mango. I can say we have had a couple of hiccups where she just didn’t want anything but her milk, but that is to be expected as it is all a new experience for her and she has been a little bit ill. I must say though if you are trying banana be warned that black stringy thread bits come out into their poo. I got a shock when I was changing her as they look like worms, but rest assured it’s the fibre from the banana.
