Today I'm sharing a day of eats for my 9 month old daughter.
If you have a baby who gladly eats everything then kudos to you. My Bear...to quote Wicked..."I'm not that girl!" Learning to feed her has been a constantly evolving science. What works one day gets you a closed mouth and a turned head the next. Blame teething, blame the moon cycle, but she keeps us on our toes.
At 9 months we are still counting on formula and breastmilk as our #1 source of nutrition. We never skip a bottle for a meal. If her daily ounces aren't where we want them to be we will wait for a meal or skip the meal. It's all about the milk in our world until she's closer to 1.
720am - wake
740am - Formula
830am - She's acting hungry so I offer some finger foods for a "breakfast". I don't want get too messy, because let's get real...I've barely had coffee so I don't feel like scrubbing the floor. I have a waffle and she has some organic strawberries, teething biscuits and a few bites of toast.
950am - Formula as we try to nap
1045am - Formula as we try to nap part 2
115pm - Breastmilk bottle after nap
245pm - Lunch - Earth's Best oatmeal made with water and a small amount of apples and blueberries, cantaloupe, scrambled eggs, organic banana, and water.
630pm - More formula post nap.
715pm - Dinner with Daddy - Stoneyfield Organic plain yogurt, the rest of the scrambled eggs (she has eggs every other day), avocado, and broccoli. All washed down with water.
As I said before we practice the mantra "Under 1, food for fun" so we're happy when she does eat but it's not the end of the world when she's simply not interested.
If you have kids were they picky eaters or adventurous eaters?
Did you try Baby Led Weaning or stick to purees?
Love and tiny bites,
