My 14 month old ds has FINALLY started eating properly. So this is all fairly new to me.
Now he seems hungry almost constantly & im running out of ideas of what to feed him.
He has 2-3 serves of fruit a day so i dont think he should have much more than that & he has a reasonable amount of veggies.
Everything has to be preprepared because he has no hunger cues at all until suddenly he decides hes ravernous & starts screaming & wont stop until I feed him. His crying has always had an effect on me & it sends my stress levels through the roof so anything i feed him needs to be very easy. Even heating stuff up in the microwave involves lots of screaming. Im trying to keep finger food on hand that i can give him while im prepping but even that doesnt always work.
Im struggling to find enough variety. Dh just goes, oh give him a sandwich or some pasta. But he can't have sandwiches or pasta multiple times a day.
Like yesterday he ate:
Breakfast - one whole weetbix with strawberries & was still hungry so i gave him some more
A couple of hours later he was hungry again so he had a bottle of half & half formula & cows milk (trying to wean to cows milk) then wanted more so i gave him a peanut butter sandwich with some cheese & cucumber & a whole kiwi fruit. He ate pretty much all of it.
Then a couple of hours later he was hungry again so i made him some scrambled eggs with two eggs & some steamed veggies - he ate all of it!
By now i was ripping my hair out trying to find things to give him.
He was hungry again a bit late so i gave him a banana which he ate all of.
Then for dinner i was completely out of ideas & wasn't able to cook anything as he was screaming. It was 5pm & he had eaten an entire banana at just before 3pm & yet he was ravernous again.
So dinner he ended up having tinned tuna with pasta & steamed veggies. He ate a fair bit of it & then still had a reasonable breastfeed before he went to bed.
This has only started since we've night weaned.
I cant keep up!! How do you do it?!
