Mom, Do NOT Feed Me Baby Food Mush!

We are still working on Liam's feeding. We have made progress in terms of bananas and yogurt. I can put almost anything in yogurt, and he'll eat it. But, we haven't gotten to where he'll eat other things of similar consistancies to yogurt. I decided it was time to at least try. Here's how it went.
Strawberry Mango Yogurt-Check!
Fresh Banana-Check! (actually he ate two bananas)
Baby Food Oatmeal With Pears and Cinnamon-Um, no thanks. Not so much.
Baby Food Turkey Dinner With Potatoes, Peas, and Carrots-Not a Chance in Hell.
As you can see from the photos, though, he was satisfied by the time he was done. He loved that banana best of all. The only downside was that I then had to redress his burn because of all the banana guts in the dressing.
(By the way, we saw the dr. today, and his burn seems to be healing according to what should happen. So far, no complications. We will take that!)


  1. Those are the most adorable pics!! We have had to work with Kemper a lot with food issues too, so I feel your pain! He's had some sensory issues but they are getting much better. I'm so happy Liam has been able to wean off his oxygen, now we can see that adorable face better!

  2. Look at him go for those bananas! Way to go, Liam!

    His little hand looks so sad wrapped up...good news that it is healing well!
