Re: Please help me feed my 1yo.

we give my 12 mo anything that we're eating. We make sure that it's small enough and soft enough to disintergrate in her mouth. she has no teeth. If she likes it great, if not, try something else.

she loves spaghetti and mac and cheese. chicken, sweet potatoes, plums, etc. give your LO a taste of everything that you eat. The only thing we don't give her is hard nuts (choacking hazard).

Re: Please help me feed my 1yo.

Fat content in the breastmilk was found to increase after one year:

Although there has been little research done on children who breastfeed beyond the age of two, the available information indicates that breastfeeding continues to be a valuable source of nutrition and disease protection for as long as breastfeeding continues.

"Human milk expressed by mothers who have been lactating for >1 year has significantly increased fat and energy contents, compared with milk expressed by women who have been lactating for shorter periods. During prolonged lactation, the fat energy contribution of breast milk to the infant diet might be significant."
-- Mandel 2005

"Breast milk continues to provide substantial amounts of key nutrients well beyond the first year of life, especially protein, fat, and most vitamins."
-- Dewey 2001

In the second year (12-23 months), 448 mL of breastmilk provides:
29% of energy requirements
43% of protein requirements
36% of calcium requirements
75% of vitamin A requirements
76% of folate requirements
94% of vitamin B12 requirements
60% of vitamin C requirements
-- Dewey 2001

There is also a bursting of antibodies when they hit around age two, and during the weaning process.

my 14 month old nurses all. the. time. and eats food sometimes all day and evening and other times just a few snacks or just a bite or 2 at dinner. Since he is BF, I don't worry about what he is eating! He eats whatever we eat, unless we are eating junk food . He will go in the cabinet and bring me his seaweed packs or a box of cereal or he loves the cocopops (multigrain) from wegmans http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/st...0052&langId=-1 (not the chocolate cereal, lol). He never had baby food, just table food and a normal day might be:
breaskfast: share granola and a banana with DH
snack: rice cake and blueberries
lunch: whole wheat toast with havarti cheese and some multi-grain chips, baby carrot
snack: smoothie
dinner: quinoa, sweet potato, or brown rice, chicken, some veggies or sea weed

other "typical" days: mamas milk and a homemade choc chip cookie

Re: Please help me feed my 1yo.

Hey Nicole, I have the same issue with Owen. I feel like I need more ideas and that I'm not doing a good job I totally understand how you're feeling. He has four top teeth, four bottom teeth, and four molars but still isn't that great at chewing meat.

Here's what I feed him... sometimes he'll eat it, sometimes he won't. It depends on if he's actually hungry or not. Also, he almost always spits out most anything I give him at first. I just keep trying and then he almost always eats it.

-raw tomatoes, one of his favorites
-kidney or black beans
-cooked egg yolks
-sauteed mushrooms
-he absolutely loves chili! or any other homemade soup
-salsa and chips
-rice/veggies/meat
-red lentils cooked to a mush
-Bananas
-Oranges
-Apples cut up into tiny pieces
-wild berries... whatever is in season. never seen him go so bonkers as he does for berries
-Plums
-Avocado
-Whole wheat bread
-wheat pasta and meat sauce
-peanut butter and banana whole wheat sandwiches
-salmon
-shrimp, clam chowder... just started giving him seafood..
-Whole wheat vegetable flavored alphabet pasta with little bits of sauteed veggies w/ butter/tamari
-cheese, especially fresh mozzarella or cheddar
-chunk light tuna mixed with cheese ravioli and butter
-yogurt, greek or regular, full fat, plain
-cooked peas, carrots
-sauteed zucchini
-chicken or other meat in small bits
-baked sweet potatoes or delicata squash
-potatoes
-whole grain crackers and hummus
-raisins
-whole milk
-generally a little of whatever it is we're eating... except we won't give him hot dogs or lunch meat.
