Henry has a crazy appetite. Very crazy. In the past few weeks I can barely a meal to myself. I always have to share with him what I’m eating or he freaks out. He also gets angry if I try to take the last bite of my own meal. I used to share my breakfast with him but today I decided I’d make him his own buttered toast and cut it up into pieces and made myself two slices of toast with peanut butter thinking that I’d have time to eat all of mine before he even cleared half of his. Well I was totally wrong. He grabbed a bunch of the little pieces and shoved them all in his mouth. Before I was halfway done my first slice, he was done with his. He’s at this stage where he will put so much food in his mouth that he kind of chokes on it. Anyone have any tips for that? I can’t get him to eat one piece at a time.
Anyways, I feel like I’m always giving him food. He wakes up, has breakfast then an hour later I give him a small fruit snack or a cereal bar then he has lunch around 11:30-12:00, goes down for a nap, wakes up and has another snack (a large one!) and then around 4:45-5:00 I give him dinner. He had 4 tablespoons of Jambalaya last night. I just don’t know where it all goes. On top of that I’m still nursing him about 3-4 times a day and he drinks water all the time and the occasional shot glass of whole milk.
Anyone else have a bottomless pit? What are you feeding your baby? Maybe I need to be giving him something a bit more filling?
