I steamed some carrots and sliced a few length wise for her to naw at while I pureed some more. We were thinking of "baby led weaning" which is where you just give them soft solid foods from the get-go (no purees) and maybe we'll still do that a bit, but we're liking the purees, too.
This morning I made some more rice cereal. This batch I doubled the water so that it was a lot thinner... I tried it without milk and it worked! She doesn't eat a lot, but she did swallow some.
She gets food under her chin in her neck and it's really hard to wipe it out.
For the next food I think we'll try bananas :)
