Its been a month since we've started solids with Damien, and he seems to be doing quite well with it.
He started with some rice cereal (but then I had a lick of that and realized it tasted like paste, so I thought we'd try something else). He moved onto oatmeal cereal quite easily, and loves it.
Now we've tried avocados, squash, pears, sweet potatos, peaches, and bananas.
He seems to like the sweet potatoes & bananas best, but opens his mouth wide for almost everything these days, so its not hard to get the spoon in with something new. Next we'll try carrots!
