So Lucy has benn TW and is fine with most meals, she still does gag everytime she has lumpy food but I'm aware that she really should be learning to feed herself. She eats toast by herself, but not through chewing, she sucks it and then has it! Is this normal???
Anyway, I wanted to try and start giving her sandwiches as going back to work in 2 weeks and thought it would be easier to send sandwiches in with her rather than foods everyday. My question is... What can I put on the sandwiches because if she doesn't chew she can't have ham and things because she wouldn't be able to cut through the ham!!!
oh yeah, I never thought of grated cheese, she'd be able to eat that. She's getting better as I'm not being put off. I know it's something she needs to learn how to do!!! She had 2 potato wedges today when we went out for lunch!!
I really dont mean to steal your thread but if you were to give her a sandwich, how would you prepare it? Would it be a piece of bread with grated cheese on it and then another piece on top? I know this sounds really really stupid but i just cant imagine my LO holding a sandwich!! He would suck it and pull it apart! Sorry for stealing your thread just interested in what way you will do this as I too would love to give LO sandwiches!!
My LO has only just started properly eating sandwiches, ie, taking a bite! Its very cute
The grated cheese sticks the bread together, along with the hummus, butter or mayo - whatever else you want to use.
I cut the crusts off, cut the sandwich diagonally into 8 pieces and just hand him one at a time. Oh, I also make sure I squish the sandwich together so its a bit thinner. Now, don't get me wrong, he doesn't eat the whole sandwich, but these days he will eat about 3 of the little bits and refuse the rest.
Wantabump, I just make his sandwich with one piece of bread, fold it in half and give it to him. The first time I cut the crusts off and put them on the tray with his sandwich and he went straight for the crusts and shoved those in his mouth so now I don't bother and just leave them on.
