We introduced Little Dorrit to some solid foods (rice cereal, pears, and sweet potatoes) a few weeks ago and that is going okay. I think I've come to the conclusion that she just doesn't love food/eating/drinking. She doesn't have oral aversion because she will suck on her pacifier all day long and want to put toys in her mouth like any other baby, but trying to feed her from a spoon or bottle can be very difficult. She only takes a bottle if she feels like it and even then we are lucky to get her to drink 20-30 mls. Concerning baby food, she doesn't seem to like having the actual food in her mouth and will often push it right back out with her tongue. Luckily, we have a speech therapist who is working with us on all of these issues and we keep hoping for improvement. This past week, we tried a sippy cup with her and I am hoping that will work better for her.
Despite her dislike of eating, she is gaining weight, thanks to her G-button! On April 15th, she had a well child checkup and she is 16.5 pounds (47th percentile) and 24.5 inches long (2nd percentile). We have a short, chubby little baby and boy, does she have some thunder thighs (and they are so cute)! Trotwood was always such a long, skinny baby, having a tiny, fat baby is a new thing for us. But she is very squeezable and we just love it. That's all for now!
