Seriously, no wonder she likes O.T ! She went from pudding to Cheetos. These are actually cheese puffs. They are easier to grip then the Gerber baby puffs and they dissolve faster. We started off with a little tap on the tongue, then we mashed it up and gave her some and then this.........
Oh why can't Cheese puffs be healthy!!! I am so proud of her though. She hasn't grasped onto the whole pick up and feed yourself system too well. So seeing her grab a lollipop and Cheeto makes me down right giddy. The even better news was she didn't choke or throw up. She has not been able to do other textures aside from purees. So this is another hurdle jumped by Miss Davy.
After her junk food fix, we worked on her cup skills. This was actually strawberry apple sauce. Were you expecting a Slurpee? I would almost expect it at this point. It seems like every food from Ot has been bought at 7-11.
Next up...liquids via straw. She did better then I expected with this. She didn't choke and she swallowed most of it.
Davy's GI Doctor was completely floored by how well she has been doing with eating. I think everyone was not expecting her to do this well, myself included. I now am seeing the possibility of how we may one day not need a machine to feed my little girl. And that feels pretty dang good.
