So yuh enjoying the first few months of fatherhood, lovin up de youth and being the playful yin to Mummy’s nurturing, protective yang. So far yuh a lot more supportive than proactive, because the child more breast-focused than a KFC ad, and even if yuh have boobs, they not producing milk. Then one night yuh liming with baby while getting ready to enjoy a late night snack, and yuh notice her looking real hard at yuh plate. For anyone else, yuh first instinct would be tuh bawl, “Gone from here nah!” But this is the love of yuh life, and yuh start tuh put two and two together. Around six months…looking with deep interest at food?
Cooking for the baby can prove more challenging than it sounds on the surface. While it’s true that, for the most part, you’ll be making one-ingredient meals, the issue for sometime-ish chefs like me is that the baby cyar deal with a Subway or a corn soup on the nights you doh feel to cook. This stage is crucial to developing the baby’s digestive system and sense of taste. Yuh always need to have two meals a day waiting there to quickly warm up and serve out. Breast milk alone doh cut it after 6 months, and bottled baby food, while convenient, is processed and costly.
