So Miss Picky McPickersons, what's going on? And, most importantly what have you done with my lil' Gillybean that never met a meal she didn't like?
These meal time shenanigans have got me thinking---Do I stand my ground and continue to offer her fruits and veggies? Should I back down and offer only what she'll eat? What if that means she's primarily only eating formula for a few days or weeks? Is this all just a phase?
Since the doctor recommended introducing table food between 8 and 9 months, is now the time to start? Since she's still toothless, what kinds of soft table foods should I start her with? How can I be sure she's still getting all the vitamins and nutrients she needs to continue growing healthy and strong?
With this new phase, I feel more uncertain than ever. As any mother would, I only want what is best for my lil' girl. Well that, and to say arrivederchi to Miss Picky McPickersons and welcome back my Gillian Grace Goodeater!
What's a Mama to do?
