Here we go again ladies. Gavin will turn 9 months in 2 weeks and he is getting ready to go to a daycare next week. He still gets 4 6 ozs bottles a day, 1 fruit, and 2 bowls on congee (with ground meat and veggies). Is he eating enough? When can I wean him off of bottle? Or do you at all?
He won't eat baby jarred food so we make something fresh eveyday. What should I do when he starts daycare? Should I allow table food?
Wow, daycare is a big step. At his age he still needs the bottle, it's still his main source of nutrition. Talk to the daycare provider, you may be able to just bring his meal with. We have moms that do that with their little ones and it works out just fine. Baby doesn't have to deal with yet another change and you fel better knowing that he's eating well. Table food will come later, I would just keep up what you are doing. Good luck to you going back to work and Gavin will enjoy the company of other little ones. It's tough, but once they get used to it, they look forward to the interaction.
Sounds like Gavin's doing fine. Ariella's 1 1/2 months older than him and doesn't each much more. She also HATES jarred food but does great with fresh fruits. I know mix the chicken with the blended veggies b/c she won't eat the chicken otherwise (she takes that after me, I'm not a big meat eater).
