Eating carrots

Day 157

When Simon wakes up early, sometimes I’m so tired and I get cranky and just want him to go back to sleep but then I remember that I won’t see him all day and want to spend as much time with him as I can. I think Simon can sense that so he’s usually a bit more cheerful. He’s more smiley and that just makes my day a little easier to get through.

Simon had another day of eating carrots. Ron learned from his friend Sabrina that making the puree thicker with rice cereal would make it easier to feed Simon and also for him to keep it in his mouth. A very good tip. Simon has been doing pretty well with the solid foods and learning to swallow more and more. He can tolerate about 2-3 tablespoons of solid food before he gets bored and starts squirming in his seat. He’s still drinking milk and actually a bit more than he normally does in one sitting, he’s up to 160 ml (~5.5 oz) each time and still drinking every 2-3 hours. He’s a growing boy!

We bought a new waterproof bib for feeding since he still does get food on his face and on his front. This bib is easy to wash and we just wipe his face with water after he finishes eating. Time to move on to the next type of food… apples maybe?
