Sooo being the lazy person that I am, I would feed him one meal a day, on most days of the week. I kept this up until about a week ago, when I googled "feeding schedule for 8 month old." Holy neglectful mother! I almost panic when I read this (from http://www.babycenter.com/0_age-by-age-guide-to-feeding-your-baby_1400680.bc#articlesection4):
How much per day
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup dairy (or 1/2 oz. cheese)
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup iron-fortified cereal
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup fruit
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup vegetables
- 1/8 to 1/4 cup protein foods
Today Parker learned a new trick....i.e playing with his food. See video to follow. We are also working on Parker's next milestone: the coveted pincer grasp. This accomplishment will distinguish him as human vs. a baby ape...big milestone!! You can see from the video that it is a work in progress.
