OK I have a few questions - MY DS is 13 months and from him being 2 weeks old, he has always, no matter at what time it is given, always fallen asleep on his nightime bottle. Should I be worried, is there any damage being done? (except to his 'tooth' as in singular!)

Also he wont eat fruit! He had it puree-ed (SP) but it's took me an age to get him onto lumps but he just wont have any fruit, I have tried strawberries, (too sour me thinks), apples and banana (no way with the banana!) Should I try grapes, as he is having problems with his poo and the GP told me to give him more fruit - any advice most welcome

Wow I've rambled on a bit there, haven't I?

Thanks guys

My 2 year old doesn't really go for fruit but he will eat it in a pie or crumble and I make them fruit smoothies which also go down well.

I would get him off the bottle now. 13 months is plenty old enough for a cup and then he is less likely to fall asleep drinking his milk, and you can clean his tooth afterwards.

BTW You may get more replies if you put a title in.

Good luck.

Will he eat porridge? If so, you can add a bit of prune juice and stewed fruit (e.g. pears + nectarines are mild and sweet flavoured. Apricots are natural laxatives too). If your stewed fruit mix is too tart, you can sweeten it by adding a bit of prune juice too.
