Ds, 9 months, but huge (nearly out of 12-18 clothes)

Breakfast: 3 teaspoons porridge.

Lunch: Two carrot chunks, half a roast potato, green bean, strawberry.

Tea: Half a nectarine, small chunk of cake that his granny gave him when I wasn't watching.

Three breastfeeds, a few mouthfuls of water with breakfast and tea.

He does also still feed in the night (grrr).

Today DD has had:
7oz formula
Breakfast: Weetabix with whole milk.
7oz formula.
Lunch: Ella's kitchen pouch chicken Sunday dinner and a yoghurt, some Organix snack finger food.
5oz formula.
Dinner: Puree of broccoli, cauliflower and peas in cheese sauce, fruit pot.
7oz bottle before bed.

I'm a bit concerned about lack of finger foods and really need to introduce more at each meal over the next few days. Just get so nervous about it.

I'm in northern Sweden and my partner hunts elk so we eat it a couple of times a week. He loves it, generally he is a real meat lover though.

TitsCrossed Sun 06-Jul-14 21:30:41

Holy fuck Ruby you poor thing wine for you

kazza446 Sun 06-Jul-14 21:36:25

Rubyooh that made me laugh out loud but then horror of horrors realised that could be me in a year or so. My ds is 6 months old and just loves boob. I'm back at work in2 months time and starting to panic as he will not take a bbottle. Trying to wean but without much success. Today we had....
Countless feeds until he got up at 10am (didn't settle until 4am)
11am porridge
11:30 bf
1;30 lentil puree & a yogurt. (after squodging cream cheese sandwich between fingers & then feeding it the dog)
300 bf
4pm bf
6pm tomato and basil pasta, pipedream
7pm bf
9pm bf

He might settle now til 12 if I'm lucky and will then have a feed about 2 and 5.

kazza446 Sun 06-Jul-14 21:37:27
