Jack had speech therapy today first time since about October.
When the appointment was made they asked me to bring a snack with me so that they could monitor his eating.
I brought ham sandwiches with me. Ursula the Speech Therapist look at me and ask me was I sure that I wanted to give it to Jack. He gets them all the time Isaid. She said that the ham was not even cut. It never is I said.
Anyway Jack started eating and she started laughing and said that the battery was done in her camcorder because if it wasn't she wanted to film Jack eating the ham sandwich as she had never seen a 17 month old DS child eating like that before. She said that it was fantastic.
I was so cockie at this stage I said you think that is good you want to see him eating a burger!! which he can by the way.
She told me to keep up the good work with his eating. I said that I cant take the credit for that he is watching everything that Ben is eating and doing and he wants it. He done it himself.
Wow thats really good. The only thing George will eat on a sandwich is jam! He won;t eat any meat unless its pureed in his food. But he has started to eat my plant thats in the lounge - I've moved it now as its not got many leaves left at the bottom anymore lol x
kimmy loves her food lol she gets everything now except sandwhiches when did u start giving them to lo? my mum read that ds babies dobt have a sense for food and taste and that they cant tell when they are full i think thats poo kimmu mmms when she is eating her grub and will push bowel away when she has had enough lol
my hv also said to be carefull as she jumped from below average to above it shes steady now but it was a 2 month gap between measurements. i give kimmy bits of bread and sausages her hand corodination isnt well as she cant bring food to mouth all the time although she is trying she like to throw it more than anything lol
Michelle, I think George was about 7-8 months when he started with finger food, he loves to eat finger food but I struggle to get his dinners down him unless they are pureed. Kimmy sounds just like George for throwing her food, he loves to throw his food on the floor, he also likes to fill his mouth with milk then lean over the side of his highchair and let it all dribble out of his mouth onto the floor - he just sits there watching it lol. You can;t help but laugh can you xx
