So here’s the update…

We’ve been busy this week, trying new foods is tough work. Just ask Wyatt and his little bum- tough work.

Friday we started with some peas. They went over pretty well.
Saturday we had more peas, again, they did very well.
Sunday we had more peas and I spent a large part of the day prepping Buttercup squash, pears and more peas to freeze. The freezer is full.
Monday we tried a little banana with lunch- they really liked these.
Tuesday, more banana.
Tuesday night I was getting pretty confident in our eating abilities and tried some mashed up avocado. This is probably the thing they like the least. We’re big avocado fans here so we’ll keep trying this one.
By Wednesday we were having some issues with constipation so we held off on our evening cereal but they did have more bananas at lunch.
I think we might try the oatmeal cereal starting tomorrow- supposedly it’s less binding but the brown rice was supposed to be less binding too and poor Wyatt will tell you- it’s pretty binding!

So we haven’t had any reaction to anything yet. We thought there was a little rash after some peas on Saturday but we haven’t seen it since and it may have been there before we started feeding that night. We were a bit rushed with dinner that night.

I’m waiting for the day when they figure out they can refuse different things. So far they spit it out, give a big smile and open up wide for the next bite- I’m not sure what they think is coming next!

    Aw, Erin… I'm sorry Wyatt's having a hard time. I know Jax did, too, at first. I really have no idea what we did for it. All of a sudden I'm thinking perhaps we made some of the cereal with half milk/ half juice (?) apple or prune. Maybe I made that up, though.
    The cereal is really high in iron, so that was a problem for us when we used the boxed stuff… if I made it myself, it seemed to be better.
    But Jax just tended to get that way no matter what as a baby. I can tell you on the positive side that we no longer have that issue! đŸ˜‰

    How sweet! Next up……indian food! That would surely clear up any poo problems. Start them on the spicy stuff early.

    We were doing half juice, now we do all juice (pear) we use the brown rice ceral too which is supposed to be a little easier. We're going to start oatmeal tomorrow which they said would be less binding as well. How did you make your own cereal? I never thought of the iron issue!

    For oats it's seriously easy… stick 'em in the coffee grinder (or buy a cheap one to use just for this, then spices after they "grow up"), make them into a powder… add the warm liquid. VOILA!
    I will say, though, because you're then missing the iron of the pre-made cereal, mention it to the doctor if you're not giving a multivitamin. (And if you are… that could really be the problem, the iron from the vitamin + the iron from the cereal = WAY stopped up kid.)

    Erin here is a great site for making baby food. I did all of Ryan's grains. When he was really lil I would do them in the coffee grinder and then when he got a lil bigger I would just put it all in the food processor. It was super easy.
    With the Avocado try it with a lil baby yogurt. I also combined it with the rice and oatmeal.

    with the constipation issue I always kept some purns on hand. with out fail 2 baby spoons full of prunes mix in with anything all of my kids would go.
    this is one of my favorite sites. Also there is a great book my mom gave me it's called "Feed Me I'm Yours" if you can't find it email me and I will get you in touch with her. She still has her copy from 1978!!!
