Quoting MumB:All great ideas ladies!!,.. I'll try all of these:)... My ped told mehe should be eating 3 meals a day plus milk and snacks in between! Poor kid is gonna be so sick of us shoving his face that he won't want to eat ever! So two meals is good u think? Thx!!
As long as he's still nursing well during the day three meals aren't necessary yet. Maybe breakfast and dinner only.
No teeth doesn't mean a thing! lol My kids that had no teeth could still gnaw the crap out of a chunk of meat or veggie that they could hold onto. By 1 all of my kids were eating whatever we were. I literally just threw a little of whatever we had on their high chair tray.
This. Though is there a reason he HAS to have three meals a day? I've always just fed my daughter when she's hungry. Some days she eats all day long and others she barely eats anything.
Her favorites are shredded chicken, pasta, and soft veggies.
Quoting mama02040608:He can have anything, really. Teeth aren't strictly necessary to eat. Crumbled ground meat, shreddéd chicken or tender beef, soft cooked veggies, pasta, rice, ripe fruit....anything you eat is fine as long as it's not too big or too hard.
aha. just saw this. ya...doctors aren'ttrained in infant nutrition. their info comes from formula companies who also sell...you guessed it...baby food ;)
Quoting Amanda_Laparra:With my son I would give him chicken, cooked veggies and fruits to eat. And he didn't have any teeth until he turned 2 years old.
