Feed Me Mommy!

Will is ALWAYS hungry! He still wants to eat every 2 hours at the latest. If he has to wait longer than 2 hours you'd think he was starving to death. I weighed him today (I stepped on the scale while holding him, then I gave him to Jim and weighed myself again) He weighs 16 1/2 lbs! (I weighed Ellie the same way - She's only 12) Because I can't seem to feed him enough with just nursing I decided to start him on rice cereal. He's hit all of the "Is your baby ready for solid foods?" milestones:
  • Sits with support and has good head control
  • Has doubled his birth weight and weighs at least 13 pounds
  • Acts hungry after 8-10 breastfeeding sessions or 32 ounces of formula a day
  • Has lost the tongue thrust reflex and is able to swallow food
Here is how it went
He sure loved it.

Awesome! He sure looked like he enjoyed it too. Hopefully this'll help him feel like he can go longer between nursings. :) So funny to see the differences between him and Ellie.

I am laughing hysterically at picture of him shoving the spoon in his mouth!!! He loves it!! I hope it provides some relief for you!

What a stinker - tell him twins have to wait 3 hours to nurse. It's a rule.

He looks so big in the highchair. I hope the rice cereal helps!
