#tbt to my son's first solid food at 20 weeks old (5 months): an organic, pastured, soft-boiled egg yolk. Egg yolks pack a big punch as a baby's first food: they're full of protein, minerals, omega 3s, and enzymes for easy digestion. Plus, they're easy for babies to eat warm and runny! It is important to gather eggs from an organic farmer or, if those aren't available, organic eggs from the store to access the highest nutritional value possible.
I love this clip because 1.) My little guy is trying to navigate a spoon for the first time and is clearly unsure about the taste, yet oddly curious 2.) I didn't yet understand the mess that IS feeding a baby solid foods, as I don't even have a bib on him. #newmom
There is some conflicting information about when to start babies on solids (4 months? 6 months?) so we met in the middle, and he has eaten an egg yolk almost every day since he turned 20 weeks. I began adding 1/2 teaspoon of cooked organic, pastured beef liver for iron, zinc and omega 3's and a pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt for a mineral boost about a week later. He LOVES it. He's now up to 2 teaspoons of liver mixed in and enjoys this as part of a meal every other day. It is a joy to know that he's getting the nutrients he needs at this crucial time of growth!
