Attempts at food


OK, so we haven't started feeding Teddy anything other than breast milk yet (although we did have a mostly unsuccessful try at giving him a bottle today). However, while we cook, we have taken to putting various things at his mouth and giving him a taste. The carrot and the banana were interesting (or, at least, that's how we interpreted his look). The tomato... that was pretty good and he kept licking it for a while. The pear, now that was very good. So good, that in addition to licking it profusely, he took his hand and pressed mine (holding the pear) so he could get more. More to come as we keep playing with his taste buds.

I remember my little guy trying new food. Give the baby everything so he can experience a variety of tastes.

What an amazing time for Teddy to be exploring food like that.

I like sweet too, Go Teddy!

Did you ever get the Super Baby Food book I recommended? Mark is almost 18 months old, and we still use it for all kinds of stuff. It's been no end of help to make sure that he's getting all the nutrients and protein that he needs since he still doesn't like the texture of meat yet.

Yes, Lisa, we did get the book. I'm still working on re-reading it, and working on my own nutrition. (I ate broccoli yesterday and it wasn't the end of the world!) I even bought a copy of the book for our midwife who had expressed interest in it. Of course, I bought both copies at least a month ago and haven't given it to her yet...

Thank you again for the recommendation!
