I have two problems with my little one (going on 15) year old.
Before Desi turned one she would eat anything and everything. She was eating three full meals a day and endless snacks. Now, ever since she turned one she wants to be a vegetarian. She will not eat any meat what so ever. We have tried to sneak it into other things, dice it, chop it, put sauce on it. Nothing works. Sometimes she will eat a few bites of ground beef if we have hamburger helper but that is only once a week if that. Is anyone else experiencing this or has with other children. Any suggestions on how to get her to eat meat or at least another good source of protein.
On to my second problem which isn't a problem really just a question. Tonight we finished Desi's last can of formula and my goal was once the formula is done so is the bottle. I think she will be OK because she has only gotten one at night for weeks now. I was just wondering if anyone else has stopped the bottle yet and if so how did it go? Did you use anything to substitute at night like a snack of some kind? Also, Desi does wake up in the middle of the night once in a while and the only thing that calms her down is the bottle. Should I continue to give it to her then or try to find something else (which I don't think I can)
