I try something new every couple weeks or so, but no luck so far. Since he's somewhere around 28 lbs, I'm not worried about malnourishment!
Hmm, good to see R isn't the only one that gags. I don't remember this problem with DD1. Anyway we've had good luck with the mesh feeder. She did seem very interested in what we were eating but I kept holding off because of the vomiting. I think it's partly a texture thing and partly a control thing for her... she needs to be able to control what and how much goes in her mouth.
Celeste, so good to see you!!!!
We missed you!
And Witt, welcome back!
Tanya, about that SA calculation. When I calculated how much I need I get over 18,000 mg of Vit C. Is that right?
: (please stop doing the division in your heads!
) How do you even take that much? I have the tabs but they take a while to crunch up. For those of you who use powder, where do you get it? And does it make anyone else super gassy? Can that be considered bowel tolerance? I do have to be around other people after all
Panda thinks you stink...
What a precious little face Kimya.
