Baby has decided that she doesn’t want me to feed her anymore. When I attempt to, she just bats at the spoon, arches her back, and “screams off her head,” as her big sister puts it. To make sure she’s getting all her nutrients, I’ve had to become creative when it comes to meal and snacktime.
Bananas are definitely a favorite of hers, but when sliced get slimy and hard to pick up. Solution? I crush some crunchy cereal (FiberOne Bran, in this case) in a little Ziploc bag, and toss the banana slices in there. She can then scoop them up quite easily, and gets a good dose of fiber to boot!
Although breakfast can be a hassle (oatmeal all over the place, at times) I LOVE that baby wants to be so independent. She can spend a good 45 minutes to an hour eating by herself, which gives me time to do other things!
