I gave birth to a 10lb 5oz baby gorilla 8 months ago and now he's got more teeth (5 or 6) than my daughter had at a year, will eat pretty much anything I give him (not big amounts but will try all we are eating). But I am getting concerned that I may be giving him too many things that may be too rich for him. If I take his sister to McDonald's I will share some of it with him but by NO MEANS are these his meals. They both have great appetites to try new things, they don't eat huge amounts of anything at meals but a consistent amount then milk, My daughter won't eat anything sweet and prefers salty foods (nuts, popcorn, chips etc) and will only ask for seconds on things like avocado, tossed salad or pizza.
But the boy will try anything and really seems to want what we are eating, but in all fairness will eat baby foods as well (which I will add fresh meat or veggies to for more substance or variety).
As you can see I'm all over the place, would just love to hear how children his age are eating. We just had a big move due to a relocation for my husband's work so eating has been less than structured (McDonald's etc) but ALWAYS good hot breakfast with eggs etc , good lunch and snacks and dinner tends to be hit and miss.
Like I said any feedback would be greatly appreciated, new to area, haven't been in to see new docs yet so I thought I'd try this in the meantime.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to any responses.
