It has been more than a month Baby G started on solid. Since she is still at the ‘tasting’ stage, we are just trying to give her a varieties of ‘appropriate’ food as I am still monitoring her allergy status. So far so good since I only give her simple stuff such as oatmeal, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, kiwis, pitayas, cod & barramundi, pork and her baby cereal. No obvious allergy reaction thus far.
I hope to offer her more varieties when her digestion systems gets stronger as I am facing another battle. This girl is not like her kor-kor. She don’t like bland food! She wanted her food to be full of flavors! For the first time, I have to add soy sauce or sugar when cooking baby food!
Sometimes she will be a good sport like this…
But most times she will be a devil doing this…
She is really testing my patience to the max! Each time I give her a new food, she will gingerly finish it without much protest but when I serve her the same thing again (most times is on the same day) she will clamped up her mouth like a clam! No amount of coaxing can make her open unless she gets really frustrated and cry… which I will use the opportunity to stuff the spoon inside her mouth! (>0<)
Since she do not have any teeth yet, I am stuck with the few food which I know she is not so keen in. She likes crunchy stuff (espcially those baby bites!) but she don’t like drinking water therefore I’ll have to cut down on those worried that she might get constipated.
It is definitely not a very sweet journey! 😦
