Hungry Baby

If you have been following my Facebook, Twitter and Blog over the last few weeks you would have read about our little peanut and the issue we are having with her gaining weight (and height) and her recent crappy diagnosis of Failure to Thrive.  One of the things we had to do was talk with a nutritionist and come up with a plan.  We kept a food diary of every single thing that she ate for 5 days and then I shared that with the nutritionist.  The nutritionist told us that we are actually feeding her a TON (which BTW is not a change from before so I am highly suspect of the feed the baby more=more weight...she has always ate like crazy).  So basically I was just told to make the calories that she is eating "count," which actually means stop feeding her puffs like crazy and put butter and olive oil on everything.  I was also given the go ahead to try a few foods that I was very nervous about due to my own allergies (eggs, milk, bananas...food).

So one morning I braved it and gave the tiny peanut a bowl of scrambled eggs and toast...and well, she loved it! Enjoy the baby happiness, we sure did.

For Me?!?!?

Diving in!
