Ben eats cereal for the first time

For several weeks Ben has woken up in the middle of the night to eat, the first few times I attributed it to a growth spurt, then to teething. But after some thinking and asking around I decided he's just hungry. His doctor told us at his 4 month appointment to wait until 6 months to start rice cereal or solids. "Cereal is empty calories" is what he told me. Since I'm a rule follower I just listened to him. But as the nightly waking continued I decided we needed to do something. So I called the doctor talked to the nurse and she said to go ahead and try it.

So for his 5 month birthday, he ate cereal for the first time!

He wasn't impressed with his first few bites.

But, then he got the hang of it...

I would call the feeding him cereal a success. But you may be wondering did we get a full nights sleep...


He woke up at 4:30 talking to himself, I got him out of bed and I smelled it... he had a dirty diaper. So I went to change him and it wasn't just the diaper it was on the pajamas too... After he was all cleaned up he then decided well since we're up why don't you feed me ;)

So night 1 on cereal didn't go quite as planned but I really think it's more because of the dirty diaper than the fact he was hungry. He decided he was hungry since he was already awake.

  1. I love that first picture! Hilarious! And I hate it when Tom has a overnight dirty diaper -- that's the worst! Good luck tonight!
