|Even Big Brother can't convince this baby that pureed food is a delicacy.|
So, yes, though I may not have admitted it at the time, I was patting myself on the back for creating a good, healthy eater. And I figured that if I just did it the same way with B I'd have another great eater on my hands.
We've been working on the feeding process with B for a couple of months. And it's not going too well. (Honestly, it's been total crap.) This kid does not like food. And not only does he not like it, he forces himself to throw up if he especially doesn't like it. Very dramatic.
|Seriously? You're trying the carrots again? |
No can do, lady.
1. Foods that make him throw up: avocado, peas
2. Foods he accepts, spits out, and then refuses: apple, mango, carrots, rice cereal
3. Foods that had limited success (a few teaspoons forced into his mouth): butternut squash, parsnips, banana, peach, zucchini, sweet potato
4. Food he likes: pears (and, come on, pears are a gimme!)
I really felt that feeding was one of my areas of expertise as a mom. Was it just that I had an easy kid?
|OK, now this is just gross.|
You just try to break my love of making baby food, little man. I dare you.
