Leah's Eating Habits


Here's what Leah "ate" for lunch today: about 10 Cheerios, she chewed and spit out one bite of ground beef, she played with a spoonful of sweet potatoes (not sure if any were consumed), and she fingerpainted with a teaspoon of chocolate pudding. She eats a lot more if she's mooching from someone else, i.e. Hannah fed her several bites of bagel this morning. She DOES still nurse 20 times (or more) in a 24 hour period. The other two didn't get interested in really eating until they were 18 months, so I figure it will be another two months for Leah...

So fuuny only b/c it's so opposite of Kelsey. SHe eats almost anything and everything (had eggplant sticks and lima beans at dinner). But I also stopped nursing at 12 mos, so she wasn't gettin' the good stuff anymore!! Good for you though....

Teslyn is a picky eater still, too. I've had an especially difficult time with her because she weaned last month and she doesn't care much for milk. She might drink about a half gallon a week. Her doctor has suggested switching her to soy milk.
