When I am trying to get my Jeff to eat off a spoon, I feel like I need to tell people teaching a infant to eat is not for the faint of heart! He was doing so awesome and moving right along, now we are back to square one again! He won’t eat rice or oatmeal cereal, no matter what I put in it to make it taste good! I did get him to eat like five spoons of green beans today before he started grabbing the spoon and making me fling it all over the place and me. He wears more than he eats most days. Ugh!
I have read all the articles that tell you not to get frustrated and all, but I have to tell you, when he ate 20+ bites of cereal I thought we were on easy street! Now, I can barely get him to eat any cereal what so ever. I tried to give him Gerber Stage 1 apple sauce too and he wants nothing to do with that. Which is kind of strange because he loves apple juice. Although he has not had any in quite a while.
About 3 months ago we switched his formula to the Gerber Good Starts Gentle, which is a liquid and the constipation went away! He is going every day now and there is no reason for the apple juice so I quit giving it to him. I am so happy that the constipation is gone and it is so much easier on us all now.
He is six months old and the time has just flown by! I Can’t believe it has been half a year already! Holy cow! Well, I need to run because I now have to feed myself, which is far easier!
