Yesterday morning I mixed up some baby oatmeal with formula for my Sweet-Potato, and rummaged in the cupboard to find a fruit to go with it. I came up with banana-orange baby food, and thought why not give it a go? She likes bananas. After feeding her the puree stuck to the foil seal plus one bite, Sweet-Potato made a face, and refused to open her mouth for any more banana-orange mush. After a few attempts to get her to open up, I decided to put that one in the fridge for later, and got out the pears that I know she likes. She ate about half of that, and hardly any of the cereal. I think she wasn’t very hungry. It’s actually funny that I turned to the pears, because I remember the first 2-3 times I fed her pears, she had the same reaction- wouldn’t touch it. It just goes to show that sometimes a baby (or adult) needs to try a food a few (or many) times before it becomes acceptable. We’ll try the banana-orange mixture again. And again and again if we need to. Or maybe just move straight to orange pieces one of these days. Beacause, really, who doesn’t like oranges?
