Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I dont feed my one year old

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
She will be one in a few weeks and while I feed her off my plate sometimes I mostly still nurse her. I should be making her solid food meals regularly but truth is I'm too lazy. Its so much easier to just bf her. So, that's my confession.

Thank you so much! I feel better now :)


Quoting UxorQuodMatris.:

I'm gonna say it again lol, you ARE feeding your baby. She's nursing and eating your food, she's fine. Your op made it seem like at a year old she only nurses because you are too lazy to feed her anything else. My son nursed mostly at a year, with a few table foods when breast milk just didn't cut it. She does not need baby meals.

Again, you are feeding her!

She eats off my plate when I eat just no special baby food meals in between

My ds was eating table food at 10 months. I can't imagine a 1 year old not eating real food.

I feed her off my plate like twice a day but no special baby food meals in between just bm. Its just easier than making her her own special meals. Not walking just yet but very soon. Very verbal!

She don't eat any foods?  Does she have any health conditions of why or are you serious about you being lazy?  

I care for 10 one year olds (with another lady) ALL of them eat regular food and are on sippy cups (none are on bottles)  

Is there anything I can assist with--Is your baby walking and saying any words yet?  Take care and talk to me anytime

There is actually no need for baby food if you prepare her meals for her.  She has teeth now so eating table food is fine as long as it is cut up for her. Is your diet healthy?  If your diet is healthy, then it's ok for her to eat off your plate.  But it would be better to just make her a plate too.

She eats whatever I give her from my plate, she just doesn't get baby food regularly


Quoting Anonymous:

She should have started some type of solids when she was able to sit up, around 6 months old. You are setting yourself up for one picky eater.  Poor baby.

While you are already up, why can't you grab another plate for her to have her own?  I don't think it's a big deal right now though.

Yes, and she gets food from my plate every time I sit down but that's only twice a day

Do you cook for yourself?

Ok that makes sense then. Thats kinda what I did with ds at first but with 2 other kids to make plates for he got his own plate pretty quick.
