Kamden is loving veggies, so far. We’ve only given him green beans and peas, but he gobbles them up like he’s been eating them since birth. My pediatrician told us not to give him any fruits until he’s 9 months old, so I’m trying to be creative. I’m giving him some store bought baby food, I’m also making him other goodies that you can’t find in stores to make sure he gets a variety. I took Kam to see the Easter Bunny this weekend at the Mall, and we didn’t have the best experience. The Bunny himself was great, but the woman assisting him, trying to get Kam to smile wasn’t so nice. She kept talking about how “fat” Kam is, she just wouldn’t let it go. I already wonder if my “little man” is too round, and hearing others say how chubby he is makes me more self conscious. According to our doctor, Kam is a perfectly healthy little boy. He’s not too big, or too small. He’s wearing mostly age-appropriate clothes, but as we moms know, not all brands fit the same! I don’t know why I feel like I have to defend him! He’s eating great, and sleeping great and he’s even starting to “scoot” around acting like he’s going to crawl. I know he’s got chubby little cheeks, I love to kiss them all the time! The obvious doesn’t need to be pointed out to me. Does or did anyone else feel this way about their babies? On the eating front, I’m only doing rice cereal in the morning and veggies at night. Once he reaches 7 months I’m going to add a veggie serving to his lunch. Should I be feeding him the same amount of formula? I don’t want to overfeed him. He still eats about 6 ounces every 3 or 4 hours. Is that normal and am I doing this right? I feel like I’m super paranoid and not getting much direction on how much he should be eating and when.
Kam has started babbling and loves toys that light up and talk or sing. Mom, and I think Dad too, are sick of hearing the same songs-and-dances over and over again, but we keep playing them because he loves them! I think he’s going to say “I love you” soon! He hears it enough! All the “experts” say repetition is key.
