I just realized I’m very–and I do mean very–behind on introducing new food to DS.
With his eczema flaring up again after about two weeks of clear skin, I’m at my wit’s end to what food he and/or I might have eaten which triggered it.
(It’s probably me, since it started again when I went on an all-hell-broke-loose diet around that time. Another possible culprit is wheat/pasta.)
At 9 months, he really should be eating a lot more solid than just 1/2 to 1 jar/cube of baby food per meal, 2 or 3 times a day. But then, at 21lbs/29″, he’s pretty big for a baby who eats so little solids.
More over, for a while, I fell back completely from making my own baby food to using jar food. It was just easier and with more variety. Also, even if he refuses, it wasn’t as frustrating and disappointing than when I spent 1/2 hour steaming and straining a pear only to have him not taking a bite.
As far as meat goes, he has only had chicken thus far.
I feel I’m running very behind.
