Get a grip!

So, here I am again... second guessing myself. I'm not going to move Brady up to the "2" foods until I talk to the nutritionist??? Egads, this boy is in big trouble. Obviously, I just did what I wanted with Michael [or, what my mother said. :) ] I mean, c'mon, it's only peas and pears!! [not together, of course]

I know I will be consulting doctor after doctor for a long time... well, forever, probably on everything under the sun with Brady. But can I make a decision like this? You know... I WILL! That's it, he's moving up!

So, guess what? Brady LOVES the "2" foods! He definitely eats more; I think he didn't like the slippery goop of the "1" foods. Plus his speech therapist is much happier, since he is using his tongue and muscles in his cheeks more. This also made me feel like a "typical" mom again, which of course I have NEVER felt with Brady, since only moments after he was born he was whisked away due to his poor breathing. Worry, worry, worry, right from the start! How nice to get a little normalcy back. Everyone should try it! :)

[okay, I'm going to email the nutritionist right now to make sure I didn't make some awful mistake.... :) ]

You are a great mom and your instincts are usually right, so go with them. Brady will help guide you and let you know that you made the right decision. :)

Good work!!!!
I do everything that if Szabi has not ws, and he has no problem with it...
I think I had fortune that the docs diagnosed Szabi only when he was 11 months old, so I had the normal-mom-feeling with him :)))))
Love, Kati

I think Erik got sick of the Gerber 1s after a while and naturally went to the 2s without trouble. You keep on doing what you are doing. You are doing great!
