Sippy cup saga
So since that last entry LM has not had another bottle. He has not been happy about it but we have stuck to it. He does so well with them at daycare. I have two sippies that are the exact one they use in daycare and then four others sippies that I found at babies r us that have the same holes at the top and the same parts but they are a little bigger and a little heavier. He does reasonably well during the day, especially at a meal where he is already eating. Sometimes he still refuses when I know he is hungry. The worst part is mornings. He is still sleepy and just wants his bottle to guzzle down. He throws fits when I give him his cup. We need to work up to it and let him wake up, by singing songs and reading a lot of books. That is a lot of work up at 6am. I hope he gets used to it soon. He doesn’t usually have a full breakfast just his bottle and then an am snack two hours later. He is never hugely hungry in the morning. One thought I had was to just replace that sippie cup with yogurt, but hubs is worried about him getting in enough liquid during the day.
Solid wise he is doing well. Yesterday he had his own dinner at 5:30pm – a Gerber meal of pasta, ground beef, and veggies. It was the first time he ate most of it. Then we had dinner around 7ish and we got pizza. They messed up my order and just gave me a plain cheese pizza. LM wanted to try it so I broke off a small piece. He loved it and ended up eating two small pieces without crust in addition to his first dinner! He really likes pizza!
So we will keep going with the bottles and hopefully each day will get better. Anyone have any suggestions?
