So I followed the directions on the box of rice cereal for "babies first meal". Crap. No good. It was so watery it went all over her face.
I improvised and made it a little thicker...much better. Natali now sucks on the spoon and swallows the meal. She is an intelligent little girl as several times she grabbed the spoon and put the food in her mouth herself. I held on as to not let her choke herself. Natali also tries (and occasionally does) hold the bottle herself as well.

Still working on a feeding plan for solids. I am going to start with once a day for a while and see how it goes.
