ok so dakota LOVES her sweet potatoes...so much that every time she takes a bite she goes " mmmmmmmm num num num " till shes swallowed every last bit of that bite .....then when her bowl of baby food is done....she screams for more and doesnt want her bottle she doesnt even want her baby cereal anymore..i tried giving her some when she woke up this morning..she ate quite a bit but not all of it..she used to eat it ALL !! just wait till she has peas in a few days....eeeeew hahaha
I am not sure with bottlefeeding but I know with breastfeeding you were supposed to nurse first then feed the solids when they were first starting because its still better for them to be intaking more milk at that age. It might be the same with bottlefeeding since her formula has more of the things she needs then the baby food. So if she wont take the bottle maybe you should feed it to her before and then wait like an hour and try the food?
im probably gonna have to do that cuz she eats a lot but now all of a sudden only wants baby food! it might also help with her getting hungry every 2 hours! im thinking about going up to half a jar since she eats it all...even with baby food and an 8 ounce bottle she wants food again 2 hours later and its the only thing to calm her down.....i tried giving her some tempra but that didnt even work ..
I give solids then a bottle half an hour later because Nickolodeon gets full off the solids for that long.
If she doesn't want her cereal in the morning, give her fruit or try mixing her cereal with juice. I mix Nick's with juice in the morning and he eats it just fine.[/b]
we arent starting her on fruits till shes tried a few more veggies..shes only had sweet potatoes so far im starting her on peas i think in a few days i might try a fruit after that..what kind of juice are you giving him?
