Breakfast: breakfast quesadilla fingers, Fruit and yogurt pouch
Lunch: sauteed shredded zucchini, mashed lentil stew, clementines. She pretty much only ate the clementines
Dinner: not sure yet. Maybe some roasted parsnips and potatoes.
So ladies, I'm wondering how much your babies actually eat of the items you've listed? My LO tends to be on the pickier side and I'm guessing that most babies her age are eating more than she does, but I'm not sure.
The only thing she eats any real quantity of are baby cereals made with breast milk, and even that's becoming a battle now. She'll suck and nibble on fruits and veggies but very rarely will she actually eat a whole piece of anything. With other finger foods she'll usually eat a few little bites and the rest become toys/projectiles. I've started giving her more puree pouches but her success with those really depends on how much she likes the flavor - most of them she'll suck on for a moment and then turn upside down so she can bite the bottom and spill it all over herself
I'm not too worried because I feel like she's making progress (at least she's trying things now!) but I do wonder if she's eating way less than other babies.
Jordan is a great eater and eats a good quantity of everything I've listed. The things she refuses now are spoon fed foods. She wants to do everything herself. She went through a bread phase of LOVING anything that was a form of bread, but that has slowed down. She loves broccoli and any form of pasta. I gave her tiny bites of homemade pizza and she gobbled them up.
Breakfast was porridge with blueberries (spoon fed).
Lunch was wholemeal muffins toasted with goats cheese spread, sticks of pear (finger foods) and 1/2 yogurt (spoon fed!).
Dinner was a scrummy thai turkey mince mix the DH and I love with spices, ginger and lots of veg. Mmmm! Spoon fed, with some lychee as finger food for dessert.
DD is a little piggy! She also has 4 breastfeeds in the day and will have at least one, probably two overnight.
It's nice to have a thread for both kinds of weaning where we can get ideas! I find making lunchtime interesting and varied the most difficult.
