After much fretting, worrying, and planning, we had a little impromptu feeding session last night. I had decided to start with bananas, but after more research and a little facebook chat with a friend, Amy, I had decided to maybe start with Avocados, especially since they can just be mashed up instead of cooked. But, last night, Isla June was reaching for the sweet potatoes and daddy wanted to give her some. So, the one baked sweet potato left (and unflavored), organic-thanks to my assistant principal, was smashed up with a little breast milk and Isla June had her first "solid food" experience. She did pretty good. We've had some spoon practice as this is how she takes her probiotics daily, but some of it did make it's way back out.
I won't say that it helped her sleep at night as we had to let her fuss last night (we'll talk about THAT later), and she still woke up @ 4am. But, at least we are over the first hurdle.
This seems to be the best way for me to handle things that I am anxious about- Be spontaneous and see how it works out.
