OK. The Baby Food Bible (aka Super Baby Foods. . . one of the books I clung to like a Mama Life Raft when Jack was a wee babe) advises that new foods be introduced during the first meal of the day. . . so that if the baby has an allergic reaction. . . or a gassy one. . . that it's not in the middle of the night, keeping him awake.
So..... It's worked for Jack and Luke (well, it really doesn't matter with Luke. . . he never slept anyway. . .). So, why change now?
Ethan's first meal of the day seems to fall sometime between 9 and 10 o'clock. Which doesn't really seem to be a problem when you're having bananas. . . and pears. . . peaches. . . maybe apples. . . But now, we're moving into veggie territory. Carrots. And now, for the last three days: peas.
And as I give him spoonful after spoonful of green mushy peas. . . Which he eagerly yums right down. . . I begin to think. . . Peas. . . For brunch? Really? And can you really call 9 am brunch? I mean, that's really pushing the breakfast boundary, isn't it?
Aunt Erin assures me that it's fine.
That giving him peas for breakfast can't really be causing him irreparable harm. . .
Until he's ten, that is, and telling me that instead of pancakes, he'd like so yummy peas for breakfast.
