At Hunter's 4 month appointment the doctor mentioned that we could start him on solids if we wanted to. I had mixed feelings about starting him early, but when a few people mentioned it helped with their babies reflux I thought we could give it a try.
He actually picked up on it much faster than Claire did and has been eating like a champ! It's been a few weeks now, and so far he's tried applesauce, banana, green beans, butternut squash, sweet potatoes and pumpkin. Applesauce and pumpkin are his favorites right now, and we have found that is does help a little bit with his reflux and overall fussiness.
Hunter has also been teething lately but his coordination isn't good enough to hold a teething toy in his mouth for long. I remember Claire used to be able to hold her cup with handles and loved to use it as a teething toy, and apparently Hunter feels the same way!
