Olivia eats!

I gave it a couple days, and then started trying food with her again. In the past few days she has miraculously started staying up longer before bed, so I decided to try it then, as she may be hungrier. (Not to mention I was trying to keep her occupied until a reasonable bedtime!)

Last night and tonight she ate a tablespoon and a half of oatmeal, and one cube of peas. I went with the peas and oatmeal since they are ones she for sure likes. She ate it all up! She may have even eaten more, but I still wanted her to nurse well before bed, so I left it at that. She has never before eaten more than a few bites of anything, let alone two servings of something! Also, I have been trying "new" foods earlier in the day, just to see what she will like, and she has eaten one cube of sweet potatoes each day for the last 2 days. 

I think she was having an off week anyways last week, and maybe she really just needed to get used to it. I didn't want to rush her, so I waited a couple days, and it was a good move! 

Just wanted to share. I am happy she is liking my food again. Now I'm almost out of peas!


  1. Yeah Oliva, that is great news. Hopefully she will keep it up!
