Apricots?
Plums?



How's his water intake?

Green bananas cause constipation but ripe bananas help constipation

I tried avocado and he wouldn't take it at all.



Ant, no water intake. Well, other than with his formula.



I tried the ripe banana for dinner. We'll see what it does for his bowels today. Thanks for the suggestions!

I don't know what BLW in terms of food :oops:
Does that just mean doing it when they're ready? Cause he's definitely ready but I'm annoyed because I can't find something that works for his little body.

We began giving our kids water once solids were introduced, at the suggestion of their pediatrician. There is some debate on this subject, as one of R's friend's father is a pediatrician and doesn't advise his parents to provide water for their babies and scoffed when his daughter told him what we'd been told.



Our pediatrician presented it to us like this: breast milk/formula is a good source of hydration when it's the only thing the baby is getting. Once solids are introduced, more fluids need to be drank to ensure that things "move" along effectively. Her logic was pretty sound to us, so we've abided by her advice.

Yes but using regular food so sometimes it's just sucking it and maybe not getting actual food in their bellies yet. Like Cheetos or fries.

He only eats dinner. What do you suggest? Avocado was a bust as well as bananas. He's a pretty hefty eater. He can eat 2 jars of food easily.




I was giving him purees and he did great on sweet potato. But he ate that for almost 2 weeks so I decided to give him sweet peas and pears. Big mistake. He got the known allergy that causes the "red ring around the anus". I looked it up and peas and pears are big culprits on that list. So they're out for a good while. I guess we could just do sweet potatoes everyday and I could try yogurt in place of a fruit.

Reese likes apple sauce in a pouches - is that too acidic? I didn't do a ton of food at home for her until recently so shed nurse here more. How about quacker oatmeal? We mashed up real food liks like potatoes, cut up tiny pieces of bread (toast), cheese, scrambled eggs. Cheerios at around 7 months.

He gets a sippy cup with 2 ounces to drink after he eats with either plain water or water/juice combo. It's mostly to help him get the feel of a sippy. I'm just not a fan of doing it in a bottle to where he'll take it seriously. That's why I'm trying to adjust his diet.
But yeah, that makes sense for sure!

Oh yeah he's still not ready for all that. He has been self feeding with the rice things and occasional yogurt melts but he isn't ready to go "chunky" all the way just yet.
I'm only doing solids once a day and probably will be like this for a while because he's otherwise content during the day. It's just the 7p dinner time that I'm trying to figure out.

Yeah, on the 7th he will be. I don't think it's too early. Trust me when I say he'd love to nom something up but he just isn't there yet. I'm watching though and he does do good with using his jaws. Maybe I'm the paranoid one here :oops: I'm afraid he's going to choke.
