No solid foods at all??

Theres this kid that goes to my daughters daycare which my mother runs. hes 13 months or something... His legs are TINY very skinny. All she sends for him to eat, (which she doesnt have to send food, but if you want your child to have something different or needs accomodations then it needs to be provided) She sends 2 bottles 8 oz each of breastmilk to have the entire day.. he doesnt get water, 100% juice... nothing... and his 'food' which is pureed and frozen into ice cubes to be thawed out. Which when thawed out, is completely liquid..

I started giving my daughter solids around like 7-9 months depending on what it was.

He has no health problems at all... it seemed strange to me and almost... like he doesnt get enough...

  • Children do not require any solid food the 1st year. They can maintain health on all formula or breastmilk

  • IDK, my kids got solid food at around 10 months but I formula fed. They ate Cherrios for snack & mashed potatoes & chopped macaroni etc. along with some pureed baby foods too. Maybe she thinks all he still needs is breast milk but he should be eating more solids. Hey, maybe she is scared he'll choke if she sends in solids or snacks & no one will notice.

  • I nursed for almost 2 years but also supplemented with other foods and liquids. He just seems like he is delayed and lacking on motor skills and is very skinny.

  • I was just curious, its been a while since i had a child that young and it seemed delayed for me.

  • maybe your mom should call CPS if he's way below the weight he should be.

  • my kids were always hungry, it seemed, i started feeding mine around 3 months. but i know a mother who is doing the same thing. only thing she does feed her daughter is ice cream and cake. other than that it's straight formula. and she just turned a year last week.

  • Maybe there is a medical reason for it.
