Starting to Feed Baby

I didn’t give Anna any solids (pureed foods) until she was 6 months old.  I breastfed her until that point and then I started introducing vegetables that I made and pureed for her.  I got a lot of ideas from the book Feeding Baby Green by Dr. Greene.  His idea is that you give the baby vegetables as their first foods so they become familiar and used to them and like them!  His way of teaching the baby to eat and enjoy green foods starts with pregnancy and continues through nursing and then feeding the baby.  I also find a lot of information from the website: Wholesome Baby Food.
