I think Annabel is hungry for real food. She'll be 8 months old in just 2 weeks!! How is this even possible?
At 8 months old Annika was working on growing molars already. Annabel is totally toothless! There's not even a bump or sign that a tooth is coming besides some slobbering that has been going on for months.
So what do I feed this child??
This is what her schedule looks like now:
8am: 10 ounce bottle of formula
1pm: 1 jar of baby food-it's an oatmeal/fruit mix and a 6 ounce bottle
5pm: 1 jar of baby food-veggie and a 6 ounce bottle
6pm: yogurt-Annabel added this in yesterday because after finishing off her 5pm meal she was still hungry
7:30pm: 1 jar of baby food-fruit mixed with oatmeal and another 6 ounce bottle
I'm not sure what else to feed her! She's eating all stage 2 baby foods. I tried to feed her those little puffs that dissolve in your mouth but even when I cut the tiny little piece in half she still acted like she was choking. She watches us eat all the time and I feel bad that she can't have any of it since she has no teeth!
Plus I tried giving her a little water after her yogurt yesterday to help wash it down and she refused it. She's never had plain water before. I also can't get her to drink from a sippy cup, even the ones with the squishy spouts like I used with Annika.
I can't believe how different these girls are!! I know by 8 months old I was packing Annika a lunch for daycare that included a sandwich and real pieces of fruit along with sippy cups!
