Checking in. I have a baby bird. Legs kick at sight of spoon and bowl, mouth opens. Am not doing well with finger food though - DS occasionally noms a bit of toast or apple. Must try harder with finger food.

Right my mission this thread is to get him more finger food led and less purée..

My mission for this thread is to find some more spoon fed food he will eat and to introduce dairy and protein.

Hi

More a natural finger food fan here than a spoon fed one, much to my dismay. Carnivore. Thought she was going to be a food refuser it just turns out I was offering the wrong foods. Ie, not enough meat or flavour.

izzybizzybuzzybees Thu 06-Jun-13 10:00:22

Food refuser here :-(

ValiumQueen Thu 06-Jun-13 13:42:12

Good one Fruit! Well played <<glares at son>>

GTbaby Thu 06-Jun-13 13:42:50

thanks Well done fruit. Lo start screaming he keeps rolling onto front and then doesn't like it and can't roll back

ValiumQueen Thu 06-Jun-13 13:44:31

Food refuser here too, unless it is fucking pear or rusk. He nearly had some satsuma from DD2 at breakfast. Perhaps I should get her to feed him?

ValiumQueen Thu 06-Jun-13 13:45:10

I am thankful for pear and rusks.

PetiteRaleuse Thu 06-Jun-13 13:55:15

vq LO always eats much more if I'm not the one feeding her. He'll get there.

fruitpastilles Thu 06-Jun-13 13:57:17

Woo, just stole the last post off gt I got terribly excited by it lol!
S enjoys a mixture of both spoon fed and finger food luckily. Although I'm struggling a bit with new ideas on what to give her, it's all a bit samey and I'm sure she gets fed up of it. I might buy the ak book.

We are off to the doctors at 3, it's about time someone took sinead's sickness seriously. I waited until she was on solids as the HV's said it will stop but it hasn't. She's not in any pain, no trouble with sleeping and already has thicker formula (anti reflux formula) but she now brings up her purees too. Any ideas here so I know what to be expecting from the doctor?

fruitpastilles Thu 06-Jun-13 14:02:37

Just vomited yogurt and toast crumbs, nice!

StuntNun Thu 06-Jun-13 14:15:11

Fruit J was vomiting six to ten times a day until he started on the Gaviscon, he hasn't had any today due to refusing milk feeds and he's been sick twice. HTH.

All three conveniently timed stay and play sessions at two local children's centres are Somalian and Arabic focused groups.
confused I'll have to drive to next closest. But prob be the same. I'm sure I've moaned about this before.
One I've been to before is 25min drive away, but its a mix of ppl that go rather then targeted groups. Really wanted something in walking distance for exercises.

fruitpastilles Thu 06-Jun-13 14:20:02

Thanks stunt hopefully the doctor will prescribe that then.

ChasingDaisy Thu 06-Jun-13 14:55:32

O keeps rolling from back to front but gets his arm stuck and screams in annoyance. He can do it as I found him on his tummy in his cot the other night. Think he's getting frustrated by lack of mobility.

PetiteRaleuse Thu 06-Jun-13 15:01:12

Don't worry. In a few months you will be getting frustrated by his abundance of mobility grin

ChasingDaisy Thu 06-Jun-13 15:08:40

grin Nappy changing is already a nightmare.

Claim racism, GT. Dp is going to email a charity about that - they went in a shop this morning to buy a book and the woman in there commented on how pale R is and queried his heritage. We laugh it off but the next person might be upset. It's not really like "ooh look at that red hair" when dp feels his paternity is being queried by a stranger!
