Infant Eating Disorders

Today it came to our attention that Jack has a problem.  An eating problem.

I've been trying to give him more table foods.  Kid's almost one, after all.  Tonight we were having spaghetti.  Perfect food for an infant, right?

Little did I know, Jack has a lesser-known eating disorder: Spaghetti-induced bulimia.

He didn't seem to mind the flavor too much.  Something about the texture stumped him, though, and he just couldn't bring himself to swallow.  When he finally did, well... it didn't stick.  And it brought the rest of the day's meals with it.

It's partially my fault.  Jack has this weird little cough he does when he doesn't like something and I laughed at it, so he kept doing it.  Combine that with the gagging, and you've got a recipe for smelly, liquid disaster.

So instead we loaded him up with bananas, blueberries, animal crackers, and chocolate chip cookies.  Yep.  We are definitely sending the right message.

Jack got animal crackers at the store because his mommy is a sucker.
