Feeding These Babies
..that is the thought top-most on all our minds.
I was talking to few other mommies and almost all of them were concerned about their little ones eating habits..or should I say not eating habits?
DDmom wrote about her 9 month old niece,my friend AP was worried about her toddler, not eating-so was my friend Pooh,about her Lil girl, a cousin I was talking to..and last but not the least, yours truly.I am sure most of you must have gone through this some time or the other. But why am I writing about this now?
Since Aadya’s 6 month visit,I have been worried. She didn’t gain a lot of weight since her last visit with her Aunty D,(Pediatrician at Phoenix)..just a few ounces in about 1 month. Then I we checked her weight before and after her ear-infection and she had lost and gained those same ounces. But I am worried. I know she is getting more active and so she is not going to gain a lot of weight too. But,my problem is I cant get her to eat. I mean,she enjoyed her rice cereal but that gave her constipation, and then one day she stopped eating it. Then I started her on Ragi or Nachni Satva.And with that I introduced vegetables- Green beans,squash, carrots and fruits-Apple(rejected),banana and peaches(rejected). The Ragi is fine but I want her to try more foods.
I remembered this post by Poppin’s mom and and then Ceekay’s post about feeding Ninni Daal ka pani. And I thought why not ask all of you to share your successful recipes of baby and toddler food and collaborate it at one place,for easy reference.
Here’s calling all mommies, to share some interesting food ideas for these little ones.
You can either post the recipe on your blog or mail me at email@example.com. And then,I was thinking of posting the recipes together as a series or as one post(depending on the response) on my Food blog.
Waiting to hear from you.. and moving a step further in feeding these babies 🙂
