Feeling like

A bad mom for not realizing that I was supposed to give him a new food everyday for three days (or four or five or six or seven depending on who you’re talking to or reading) before introducing the next one. We have been waiting the amount of time recommended by our doctor between new foods, but have been feeding him whatever we or he wanted in his established repertoire during the days between “new food” days. D’oh!

    I’m not sure I understand this post. Were you only giving him the new food for one day?

      Sometimes. We would give him a new food and he would usually eat the whole jar. Sometimes we would give him the new food again the next day, but we would often give him something else the next day, so he would have variety and wouldn’t get too stuck on one food he liked. Our doctor’s handout didn’t say anything about giving it a certain number of times before introducing another new food.
