Remember when I couldn’t remember to feed 4 month old Cash? I finally remembered! Okay, not so much “remembered” as “outsourced.”
I have all these children. Why wouldn’t I put them to work? Well, it all went very well. Cash loved his oatmeal. And the kids loved feeding it to him.
You know what I didn’t exactly love? That very night, Cash barely slept. He cried most of the night, writhing around in discomfort.
Turns out, we went a little heavy on the oatmeal.
So if you are ever feeding a baby solids for the first time…
1. Feed in the morning (we fed him just before bedtime).
2. Make the rice cereal or oatmeal very liquidy (we made it super, stick to your baby ribs thick).
3. Only give the baby a little (I’m not sure how much we shoveled into poor Cash – heck, I was in charge of the video).
4. Don’t ask a woman with 5 kids for advice on feeding or child rearing. See above for proof.
