We got clearance at our last clinic visit to try rice cereal with Blaise. We decided to make sure she was doing okay with the big bottles before we introduced anything else. Two weeks and 10 oz of weight gain (!) later, we figured we'd give it a try.
She was completely indifferent to the taste and had no idea why we were trying to stick a spoon in her mouth. When we give her a clean spoon to play with, she pops in right in her mouth, but I guess us doing it was too weird.
Still, not total failure. She didn't gag or retch or anything. It's hard to say whether she swallowed any cereal, either, though. We'll keep working on it. We also have to wait a bit and make sure she doesn't stool out or get a rash or anything. Here's hoping this goes smoothly.
In other news, Blaise is still falling asleep on her back and waking up on her belly. The International Brotherhood of Gnomes who Flip Babies Over While They Sleep has denied responsibility. If you have any information that might bring the perpetrators of these attacks to justice, please contact Blaise. Anonymity is guaranteed.
