Henry’s first food – Lemon!

It is two weeks before Henry turns six months old and he has just tried out his first real food. We’re on a family vacation at the Washington coast and Henry is having lots of new experiences. He’s meeting new people, getting his toes wet in the ocean, and playing in the sand.


While dining at a seafood restaurant, he started reaching for the food on our plates. On a whim, Daddy and I decided to offer him a lemon wedge. He loved it! He went crazy slurping on the juice. No puckering or sour faces. I held on to it for him since it was a bit slippery, but he was really digging in.

 

Later, I read that citrus may not be a good option for babies since the acidity can cause diaper rash. We kept an eye out for any possible rash, but Henry was unaffected. He did have a bout of spitting up later in the afternoon, but Henry tends to spit up a lot so I’m not sure whether this is directly attributable to the lemon.

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
