It's true. We weren't completely prepared...But here's how we did it:
Yes... our highchair is on backorder and probably won't be here for a few more weeks. For those of you who are curious we ordered this Chicco swivel hook on highchair to save some valuable floor space. We liked it because it turns so baby can face you while you're feeding them and it still has a cleanable tray for self feeding. But like I said...we don't have it yet...so I can't give an honest review until we've used it.
We did have a backup that Miss Emily Gunesch suggested we get many moons ago. My Little Seat wraps on any chair and it turns it into a mini high chair! It works for now. The only problem was our dining chairs were too tall so we had to put it on our computer chair.
So we strapped Gunnar in this bad boy...with our favorite fully sleeved bib from IKEA.
I took out the 2 ounces of breast milk I pumped a few nights ago when I thought Gunnar had woken up but didn't and poured 1 oz of it in the small container of our magic bullet. Then I added 1/6 of a piece of avocado and blended away. Mmmmm Breastmilk flavored guacamole! And here's the fun part....I put some on a spoon and offered it to G! He was really excited about the spoon. I think he was more excited about the Gerber BPA Free Soft bite spoon than he was about the new experience he was having in his mouth. He ate about 1/8 of what I prepared and spent most of the time chewing on the spoon. And we made an excellent MESS!!! Breastmilk Guacamole in the Hat even!!
We were planning on trying some more avocado tonight but...as I suspected the other half of the 1 avocado John bought at the store looked brown and icky by today. Hmmm so we moved on to BANANAS tonight!! Same recipe minus the avocado. HUGE HIT! He ate maybe 1/2 of what I prepared him this time...and we learned the technique of holding his arms down to get him to focus on the eating. SUCCESS!!! More bananas tomorrow night! Fun Fun!
|I don't know why he's wearing a winter hat...it was cold yesterday...40's.|
