We Give Up!!


This last week has been a challenge with trying to get Katie to start solids. I tried both cereal and applesauce, and Katie hates them both. She coughs, spits, sputters, chokes, and eventually makes herself vomit, and it just isn't worth it at this point. She ends up with negative calories after she throws up her cereal AND her milk! I am going to try again every couple of weeks until she is ready to eat, and we will work from there. They say every baby is different, and this one is not a good eater, I guess. She will figure it out eventually, but until then, we are going to go back to peace and happiness at meal time!

Well, she had to show you sometime that she wasn't 100% perfect! ;)

She makes it look like child abuse! I think a break is a good idea! Try sweet potatoes next time.

Maybe she will skip the baby food stage, WOOHOO!! She is getting all the nutrition she needs from her mommy milk:-)

Karen, my girls hated baby food too- Ani NEVER ate it- she went from milk to real food, and she's fine- Katie will be too. Bless her little heart, she looks so sad! You're such a good mama- you guys will figure out what works for her. Good luck!

I can't BELIEVE you would try to feed your child! I love the background and header, by the way!

Poor baby! Rice cereal is gross anyway!
