Mamas, thanks for all the great ideas. This is truly invigorating; I feel like I finally am starting to get the hang of what to feed DS.
This morning I made him oatmeal using soymilk and not water, and mixed in a glob of pumpkin seed butter, some flax meal, and protein powder. He LOVED it. He ate so much he didn't want morning snack! And then at dinner I made him a smoothie with soy yogurt, soy milk, pumpkin seed butter, flax seed oil, blueberries, banana, and more protein powder. He sucked 1/2 a cup down in no time. My plan tonight for the 4:30 a.m. hungries is to have the remaining smoothie in a cooler next to the bed.
I also went back into "Super Baby Food" and pulled a few recipes which, if I get to it, I'll post here for others to use.
TanyaLopez- Thanks for mentioning the TF diets. I had just begun to do a little research in the healthy eating forum on saturated fats, and TF diets came up in the searches. I'd never heard of them before! I need to do some more reading.
kjbrown- White potatoes? Really? Eeks. I've recently begun to realize there may be something else on Ovi's no list that we don't know about. His skin has been eczematic now more than it used to be.
