So my daughter just turned 1, she's been on solids for a good 3 months already. Finger feeding and such. Has been walking by herself for over a month. She is so independent when it comes to feeding time. She refuses almost everything I feed her, and is picky when it comes to foods she can feed herself (carrots, crackers, tuna, chicken, etc). She is very active, already having just 1 nap a day, and is sleeping through the night and she has been since she was 4 months old (thank God!). So my questions is, should I be giving her Pediasure since she is so picky? She isn't on formula anymore, she already made the transition to whole milk, so she isn't getting the nutrients she used to with her formula and because she is so picky. I could easily ask her pediatrician in a few days for her 1 year check up, but I would like to know firsthand what other mommies have done with their kiddos!
We never did with Ryan....He has been taking 1/2 a Flinstone vitamin with Iron since he was able to chew them. Our doctor said to keep exposing him to a variety of food but he was developing well so it wasn't really a concern. It sounds like she is doing very well so I wouldn't worry too much about supplimenting but absolutely still check with the professional.
