Thursday, November 20, 2008 - Update

Olivia has decided that she will refuse any new food that I give her, but is very open to food that she can feed herself. Now that she is getting better with finger-feeding, I have started putting many different foods on her tray. Yesterday, in addition to her usual Puffs, Cheerios, and Cheetos. . .I added some cheese and a few of these cinnamon snap cookies. She tried them, however, a little bit later her chin broke out in a rash. I had also tried some whole milk with chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast, but she only took 1-2 swallows of it. I was talking to my sister-in-law, Shelley, and found out that Izzy gets a rash from cinnamon. I'm going to experiment a bit more with it to see what happens, but I'll wait awhile.

How about kiwi? A ripe kiwi is so soft that it almost disolves in the mouth. Also mango is a big hit with my 14 month old. As is (sweetcorn) corn on the cob - not sure if it has the same name in america though. And of course cucumber - she loves cucumber cut into sticks.
My baby has also rejected the spoon. Refuses to open her mouth unless she can do it herself.
