So many things are changing everyday with Kamden, it’s hard for me to keep track. He can sit up almost on his own, and he’s doing incredibly well with his rice cereal. I called our pediatrician’s office last week to see if we should start Kamden on real foods, they advised that we wait until he’s at least 6 months old. The countdown is ON! We were feeding him in a Bumbo baby seat, but Kam’s little legs are so chubby, they’d get stuck in the seat. I don’t think he was very comfy in there, so over the weekend, Kyle and I bit the bullet and got him a “big boy” high chair!
So far, so good! He doesn’t mind going in there to sit up and eat his rice cereal. Hope we’ll have the same luck when we introduce his veggies! I feel like I’m over-concerned with his eating and whether he’s on schedule. Part of it, I think, comes from the fact that he’s a “healthy”(and by healthy I mean chunky) baby boy.
I’m worried I’m over-feeding him, but sometimes, after he finishes his 6 ounce bottle, he cries for more food. I never know if I should keep giving him more, or try to hold him off. I’m also worried about starting him on “real” food, because I have no idea how much, how often, and what foods to give him! We haven’t decided if we’re going to make all his food, or just buy baby food. I know I over-analyze, but what new mom hasn’t? I’m also thinking Kam will get a couple of teeth soon, he puts everything in his “kisser”. The drooling has slowed itself down a little bit too, which is good! He’s laughing, crying, trying to talk, and loves when I read him stories at night. We couldn’t be more blessed. If anyone has experience or advice about feeding, please let me know!
