Several months ago I wrote in tears about how my daughter was refusing all food on a spoon. She would only accept hand given food and that was limited to Yogurt drops, Puffs and some Cereals. This went on from 15mo - 18mo and to make matters worse she had dropped to the 0 percentale of her weight category at 15mo. The doctor said to fortify her bottles with cream and safflower oil - the oil was gross so we stuck with the cream and formula so she could continue getting her vitamins and nutrients. At 18mo she had gained 3lbs - from cream!
In the last few weeks she has taken an interest in everything we eat. Tonight a I tried a new vegetarian dish (to save money) Vegetable and Bean Polenta Pie and she LOVED IT! I'm so astonished.
Oh and the bedtime change appears complete, she doesn't want to be rocked to sleep anymore, bad behavior ensues like pinching my collar bone until I lay her down in the crib. Double astonishment!
