    Fattening him up!

    Advertisements
    Alright mommies, hit me with the fattening foods. So far B loves avocado so I'm going to be adding that to his other foods once I'm sure he tolerates it ok. Also a little bit of olive oil. He's not really into cereal and projectile vomits if I add it to fruit. What other foods can I give him to chub him up?

    ETA- he's 6 months old.

    Hmmm I'm finding conflicting answers on eggs. Has anyone given egg yolks to a 6 month old? It seems the whites are what typically trigger allergies.

    My doctor told us, right off the bat, that the new recommendations is that the only food they should NOT have under a year is whole milk and honey, unless there is a family history of allergies

    ETA: we gave joseph the whole egg at 6 or 7 months.

    We didn't follow any guidelines on food except only introducing one food at a time. We did whole eggs at around six months and we mixed it with plain tapioca pearls, that was the only way he would eat eggs for a while.

    We did not even follow that for Joseph, but we did talk to our doctor about it before hand. He just told us to watch, and if we had issues, then to go back and reintroduce the foods one at a time.

    Wyatt has super sensitive skin, though, so certain foods, even now, would blow up his butt even when he was EBF just from what I would eat sometimes. Plus it was easier when I was making all of his food
