Okay moms (& dads) I've got some questions!! We are approaching Isis' first birthday so things are changing with her! Her little body is just growing & growing & she keeps moving from milestone to milestone! So here's where I'm wanting some input & different perspectives/strategies.
When did you switch baby to a forward facing carseat? We are waiting to 12 months, but I'm wondering how many people kept them rear facing & for how long.
What was your strategy with transitioning to a cup/weaning from the bottle? Isis has taken sippy cups with water since 6 months old, but we tried putting the formula in a sippy cup & she HATED it.
Also, how did you transition from formula to milk? And at what age was your baby fully off the bottle?
When did your baby transition to just one nap per day?
What is your feeding schedule like after 1 year? Like when do you do solids, snacks, what does night time look like? Like dinner at 5, snack at 7, then bed? Stuff like that. How much milk do you do and when?
And Isis has all of a sudden decided she's going to be a picky eater!!! She's previously eaten everything from broccoli, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, tofu, beans, rice, parsnips, chicken, strawberries, papaya, pears, prunes, apples, etc. And now, ever since she stopped eating pureed food & started eating pretty much all finger foods, she won't eat ANYTHING. She will eat graham crackers, salmon sticks, vegetable tots, bread, cheerios, banana, grilled cheese & tomato soup. And literally - that's it. We keep trying new things every night. Pastas & things like that. She did eat beans & rice at the Mexican restaurant the other night. So what strategies did you have for feeding picky eaters?? Or just for finger foods in general? Did this get better once they stopped drinking formula & started doing mainly finger foods?
Thanks for your help!!! I have 12 days left of student teaching!! Yay!!
