At the 4 month check-up, we were told to begin solids (cereal). Little did the pediatrician know, we started them a few days earlier. The cereal tasted like, what I would imagine, wallpaper paste to taste like; therefore, we jumped the gun a little sooner to add in fruit. We already knew that Spencer was OK with prune juice and apple juice, so we stared with adding in prunes or applesauce. It was a tough start, but we eventually caught onto it! Also, I learned to love exersaucer!
