We then moved him on to oatmeal, then barley.
He might have some sensitivity to either one, or both of 'em.
So those were taken out of rotation, and now he's slowly making his way through pureed veggies, and later fruit.
I totally intend to make my own baby food. I just don't have the energy to get it done. Yet. So in the meantime, storebought it will be!
Here are the veggies he's gone through:
- green beans
and here's the plan for the next few veggies & fruits:
- sweet potatoes
- spinach (as part of a mixed veg including already-vetted carrots & peas)
- corn (as part of a corn & sweet potatoes combo)
- advocado* (will be of the freshly-mashed kind)
- prunes (will this give him the runes?)
- bananas* (will be of the freshly-mashed kind)
After that we'll move on to include meats & legumes.
Each type gets fed in the morning for four days in a row (unless a reaction is seen/detected earlier) followed by a day or two of rest (this slot is then filled with rice cereal).
He also gets rice cereal in the afternoon daily.
I had been taking it easy about feeding him solids, maybe once a day, skipping it if it was inconvenient, if we were gonna be out and about, etc. But at his 9-month check-up, it turns out he's not been gaining the weight he should be, so we're upping his solids (and therefore caloric) intake in addition to trying to maintain his liquid intake.
From the way Nova is snarfing down his food (I swear I've got to shovel the cereal and/or veggies at full speed into his mouth otherwise he starts chewing his bib) I guess he's liking and wanting this change.
We've got a follow-up weight-check appointment in 6 weeks' time. I think we should be on the right track.
