Baby's First Food: Coconut Milk

One of the main components of coconut milk is a medium chained fatty acid, which is also true of breast milk. This makes coconut milk an easily digested first food. Babies and children need lots and lots of healthy, saturated fats for their rapidly growing brains.

I scooped out the creamiest (solid) from the top of the can and gave Caroline (almost 7 months) about a teaspoon, a bit at a time.

She loved it!!

Did she make "mmmmmmm" sounds like her Momma does when something tastes really yummy?

Yeah! Thanks for the recommendation. We will be picking some up tomorrow. I'm taking a very relaxed approach to solids this time (with the others I made lots of homemade organic baby food), and want to mostly nurse and just introduce finger foods and a few pureed foods. We'll see! I haven't actually started yet. ;)
