24th July 2013 – First Solids, Day Two
The second feed of solids went fairly well.
As seen below, we’re also trying different spoons for less drip onto the bib and more into the mouth 🙂
My wife discovered that she has been giving Gio too little rice cereal. She was counting the teaspoons after mixing the cereal with the formula, instead of before. We had a discussion
(hahaha, discussion indeed, read ‘Kay please get your notebook and write these measurements) about that and I told her to write down how much cereal to measure out for the next two feeds.
Below, Gio also finding out how much cereal he should get, seems the whole family is involved.
25th July 2013 – First Solids, Day Two Again
Yesterday my wife discovered that she had been giving Gio too little rice cereal because of counting the teaspoons after mixing the cereal with the formula, instead of before.
No wonder we hadn’t seen any change in Gio’s behaviour, like sleeping more etc. So today was going to be a fresh Day Two.
She mixed 10 teaspoons of cereal with the formula, the meal almost filled the bowl.
After a while he started fussing and rubbing his eyes. Yup, sleep for sure.
He had taken more than half the bowl. We tried giving him more but he got more agitated so we stopped. My wife breastfed him and he slept almost immediately.
Tomorrow we will give him the meal when he’s wide awake and alert.
At the chama, the ladies as usual fussed over Gio for a while. My wife says those interruptions are why the chama ends later than the stated finishing time. Gio has a deep voice and one lady at the chama says that’s the only factor Gio inherited from me 😦 . . . normally when Gio wants to feed, his voice becomes deeper as the boob is being unleashed so one of the chama ladies was so fascinated and kept saying ‘ Eh the way this guy approaches his meals, hahaha’
