William is eating and drinking so much better since we started offering solids regularly. Oh yeh we're now offering solids regularly ;). I've made several high fat baby foods for him:
Chicken, green beans, sweat potatoes, olive oil
Banana, apple, carrots, and olive oil
Turkey, sweet potato, zucchini, carrots and celery, and safflower oil
Chicken, zucchini, carrots, celery and spinach and safflower oil
Any thinning is done with milk or oil to keep the calorie content up
Today he ate:
7 oz with the sitter and 1 triangle of turkey mix (about 1.5 oz each)
8oz @ 3pm
2 triangles of 1 chicken, 1 avocado mixed
2 triangles of chicken avocado mixed
9oz of milk @6pm
5oz @ 7pm
Boy was his tummy full!
Also, he's loving his new chair (the bucket)! Sitting vertical can help with digestion, and motility of his gut, bone growth, strength, all things kids with CP can have problems with, as the brain damage can effect all muscles even the muscles of the gut.
