I finally got a nanny to come in and watch our son. The great thing is, she brings her 2yo daughter in to play with my ds. She is doing well, but it is obvious she is not super healthy or earth friendly. (this is week 2)
She is doing the CD thank goodness, but having her daughters disposables in the house took some getting used to (they stink!) She is putting them in the garbage in the garage now!
I think the hardest thing I have found is the whole lunch snack issue. I have a full time job, that I do from home, so I do not have time to always see what my ds is eating. We keep processed snacks in the house, but we only gave them to him sporatically. I bought some also so she would have for her daughter because I know her eating habits. (lots of fast food, micro meals, processed food city)
He used to eat lots of fruits and veggies, applesauce, yogurt, ect... I feel like all day he eats junk. I bought some mini corn dogs and chicken nuggets for a once in a while treat and instead he eats it every day. I also usually only give him water with juice in the morning (he gets bad diaper rashes). I told her no juice and sugar. Yet, I have caught her twice giving him chocolate covered cookies (my hubbie eats) and a piece of cake. I am just like WTF
I don't care what she feeds her daughter, but I want to strip a lot of the crap food back out of his diet. Should I just make a menu? Or, put the food out I want him to eat? Anyone have any suggestions?
