ds is getting very fussy with tea at the moment, and normally eats good portions of pasta or mashed potato at teatime. as soon as he has a cold he seems to go off eating at teatime and wakes in the night or very early am hungry. any ideas which might tempt him, and be filling enough to get him through the night without milk? has anyone given supper with bedtime milk, ie some breakfast cereal with any success??
a really good one is oats, maybe with figs, milk, banana, yogurt, maple syrup - anything you think of although my ds loves figs and banana. Oats are slow release energy (i also puree it when hes being fussy due to teething) and that kept him full throughout the night
ds2 is the same at the moment....founf he has cut 3 top teeth in a few days and the 4th is just blistering....hence the constant crying. He has scrambled egg and beans for tea and then i do him a bit of ready brek for supper with his milk.
skibunnyflummy, do you want to give mine a cuddle at 4am too!!?? seriously, my ds has been teething since last september now, and still only has first two, which he's had for 5 months. the waking up at all hours, poor naps in day, lack of appetite is driving me round the bend! i once read a thread on mumsnet from spacemonkey who said that such were the stress levels in her house due to teething that she nearly knawed off her own limbs and the dog developed mange; i laughed at the time, but now i know exactly where she's coming from! , phew, feel better for letting that out! anyway ds has just managed a bit of pasta finger food and a small bowl of sweet potatoe for tea. not his usual amounts so may still offer him a bit of cereal with his milk. thanks for tips!
