We fed Ari oatmeal a little after he turned four months old. He was unimpressed. He didn’t even know what to do with the oatmeal when it was in his mouth.
We tried again — with oatmeal — a couple weeks later. Still no success.
Two more weeks passed and we gave puréed avocado to our five-month-old boy. He spit it out — again.
But Isabelle loved avocado. And she devoured food at four months. How can Ari dislike eating? I wondered.
Different kids. Stop comparing them, I reminded myself.
We waited another week. More avocado went in… and got spit out.
Maybe we should try a different food.
Marc suggested carrots. Rather than roast and purée a batch of carrots, I took the easy route and bought jars of Earth’s Best carrots.
Tonight we tried the carrots. And, by golly, he liked them!
