Solid food is everything Maddie has ever dreamed of. I have read that it takes most babies several weeks to actually eat solid food. You try a little one day - and keep forcing a bit down - until they are used to the texture. Madelyn spit out two, maybe three spoonfuls, and realized that this was baby heaven. She even ate the leftovers on her bib after I had finished feeding her. But let's be honest...did any of us ever doubt her eating ability?
