hey there. my baby is also just four months old, and i have started her on vegies. she loves it so much more than farex. she wouldnt swallow her farex at all, but eats all her vegies. i found that if you buy the jars, or make your own, to put them in an ice cube tray, to freeze, and use only one cube at a time to start with. that way it is containing all the goodness and nutrients, and its saving you on wasting the food if it doesnt get eaten. i found that sweet potato, carrot and parsnip is really good.. my baby loves it.
i found that farex wasnt a really very good for my baby, i tried it, and my bub rejected it, so if your willing do try it. I found it so exciting that she loved her vegies. i first tried her on the heinz baby puree 4-6 month sweet potato parsnip and carrot, just to see wether she liked it, and she does. but its up to you wether you buy the jars, or you make it yourself. i havent yet made it myself, but am going to. and about mixing vegies, i dont have a problem with it, as i seem to think that the flavours mixed will be more flavoursome for our little bubs, rather than trying one at a time. but its still up to you, you cant really go wrong. if they dont like something, then you persist, and then if they still dont like it, try something else, or do mix it with another vegetable. also i was told to start vegetables befor fruit, as fruit is sweeter, and if a bub has something sweet first, it will expect everything to be sweet. thats why starting with the bland vegies first and introducing fruit later is supposed to be better, and more easier for the mum or dad to get their baby eating vegies. i hope i was a help for you.. goodluck with it all.. smile
