1yo DS is still a milk monster! Any ideas for BLW food to tempt him?

Any advice appreciated...

DS is nearly 13 months and is small and I don't think he's losing weight.
but he's never been a good eater. He refuses to be spoon feed so we defaulted to BLW. But mostly he just plays with the food before it gets flung on the floor.

I feel a bit blush but he still wants two bottles a night, regluar as clockwork at 1:30am and 5am. That combined with daytime milk drinks means that its going through him like a porsch - so many dirty nappies at the moment!

He likes pasta with tomato sauce, and cake and biscuits and that's about it. And not even that some days.

What can I give him that might tempt him to eat something different?

Have you looked at This site?

To be fair, the only way I stopped DD waking for a night feed was to refuse to give her any milk after bedtime (7pm) - bloody hard for the first few nights, but it sorted it quickly. She has a beaker of milk shortly after waking, and a bottle of milk at bedtime. That's it. If he's having milk in the day, he's probably not hungry which could be why he's messing with food rather than eating it.

Thanks for the link - great site.

I suspect that's why he's messing around with food too.

(Love the name btw; flissed myself laughing...)
