Good Grief

Holy cow!!! Taylor has been cranky, and cranky is an understatement. I believe it is because she is teething. It's that or because we tried a new formula, this one has rice starch in it to help with spitting up. She only had a couple of bottles of this stuff because it was sooooo thick! So we stopped that one after I did some research that said formulas with rice starch is good for spitting up it can cause constipation. So no more of rice starch.

Okay I need for someone to smack me on the back of my head. I was so looking for to giving Taylor some homemade baby food at 4 months (because that is when I started with the boys), and I have given her some homemade applesauce, peaches, and peas. Not frequent meals, just maybe 1-2 times a day every 2-4 days. But lately I have been getting a lot of comments 'She is such a chunk. Aww look at those thighs.' and so on. Then I found some research saying that starting baby food before 6 months can cause obesity. I have found myself lately worrying about her weight and her looks and not wanting to give her anymore baby food. I know I know, stupid momma. But seeing how people treat over weight people (because I am one of those obese women) I don't want her to have those same problems. I wasn't always obese; depression and lack of activity is my downfall. Now I have been curvy, but a steaming hot curvy. What do you think, should I continue giving baby food?

Well Taylor wants me, and she is in a good mood!! Woohoo!!! Laters.

  1. My thoughts are that if she is not satisfied with just a bottle every 2 to 4 hours, that means that she is still hungrey and baby food would be good, if she is satisfied let it be. Only one of my girls started eating solids at 4 months, the others were closer to 9 months or later. The one that had breast milk until 18 months and no solids until about 15 months is one of my bigger girls. Just TRUST YOURSELF, you will figure it out.

  2. Thanks hon! Yeah some days bottles are just plenty, but other days I can tell she wants something more. It is somewhat funny with the boys I did what i felt confindent (they are still alive and great boys so I must of done well so far) but with taylor I find my self second guessing all the time.
