DS is 14 months old and I really don't know where I should be with feeding him. He has all his incisors and 2 upper molars. What do you feed your kids for a meal?
When I ask at the Drs, all they say is you are doing a good job, keep it up! Because he is where he should be for his age. And then tell me, he'll let me know when he is ready...he NEVER held his own bottle until the day we stopped giving it. He will eat ANYTHING you give him either spoonfed or finger foods. If mommy is offering it, he will take it in whatever form it comes in (except liquid formula!)
Should I still be feeding formula? Baby cereal? Every meal, some meals?
Right now I mix 2 scoops of dry infant formula with 4 tablespoons of some type of baby cereal 3-4 times daily. With that he gets 2-4 ounces of jarred baby food (veggie or fruit). From there the rest of his meal is sippy cup and finger foods until he starts throwing things/playing with it and you know he's done. He gets whatever we are eating if its something he can chew and I've started ordering kid menu stuff because he eats nearly 1/2 of my dinner if I don't.
The only thing I can't get him to take much of is dairy. He doesn't like milk, cheese, cottage cheese or eggs. He will eat yogurt but too much gives him the runs. I've gotten him to drink Almond milk dark chocolate cut with 1% regular milk finally. He doesn't like whole milk, Lactaid or Coconut milk.
Occasionally I have tried to just feed finger foods but he doesn't seem full, after an hour he is hungry again. (When I say finger foods, I mean anything we eat just finger sized.)
Just curious to what everyone else does.
