GoatSpawn Eats!

With her swiping at our food and her six month birthday looming on Saturday and Foodgoat antsy to get in on the feeding times, we decided it was time to see how GoatSpawn would like a food other than Ladygoat milk.

Foodgoat has said that if he could only have one food for the rest of his life, he's pick avocados. So what better food to start young GoatSpawn's eating career with? Plus, it's mushy and soft and packed with nutrients and healthy fats.

To get it extra soft, Foodgoat pureed a bit of avocado, along with a bit of chicken broth.

The result was tasty, even to Foodgoat - not like some of the jarred baby foods I've had in the past.

Her table is set!
So how did she enjoy her first foray into adult food?

All in all, it was a good start. She willingly tried it more than once, and while I'm not sure if more ended up on her face or in her stomach, she did manage to have some, and didn't cry. Clearly, it was a strange and unusual experience for little GoatSpawn, but we're encouraged that it is one that she doesn't seem completely opposed to trying again.

There was avocado left over, which Foodgoat was happy to eat. Which would not have happened if the avocado had been mixed with breastmilk instead of chicken broth, as I had suggested.

  1. Oh gosh, your baby is abolutely adorable!

    Mine were certainly hungry at this age too and started chowing down on simple rice cereal mixed with breast milk. Do you think she might like that?
