the story so far....
ok, i have some catching up to do here.
my husband tom and i started charlotte on solid foods the day before she hit 6 months. she was showing all the signs of being ready to try something new, but without seeming starving hungry all the time.
she had been sitting in her high chair at the table and desperately reaching for our food. we started out with steamed pear, which we offered for 3 days - by the third day she was happily slurping on the juice, but not actually eating any. this was a good start. she was also nursing every 2 -3 hours in the day and waking at 10ish and 3ish in the night to feed.
to be continued...
