I feel like the worst mother in the world right now, but I mustn’t! Parenting is a HUGE learning curve and i shouldn’t blame myself for not knowing everything!
4-5 months old, still new to the world, I started to let Arwen familiarise herself with small tastes, smells and textures of different foods (mostly purées as I was naturally scared of her chocking – so you can guess I didn’t go with BABY LED WEENING).
This meant by 6 months onward she was terrific at eating meals morning and night with breastfeeding still being the most important intake.
Arwen is now 8 months. She was breastfed as soon as she woke up in the morning, had 100g of a cow&gate jar for breakfast and then constant breastmilk until another 100g of food for dinner.
However, today she had her usual routine and I decided to take a gamble and give her extra food. On top of her regular meals I have her 200g of cow&gate desert…
SHE CONSUMED THE ENTIRE 200G PORTION!
I haven’t been feeding her nowhere near as much as she wants/needs to eat!
I feel cr*p thinking I’ve been starving her!
Me! Her own mother!
So today I definitely learnt how much Arwen can intake and the food she needs day by day.
Do your children have similarities to Arwen?
Do you think I am doing well?
