Random thought of the day...
So how "Green" can a mommy who has never paid much attention to that idea really become! Last night I saw a commerical for the Baby Bullet http://www.babybullet.com/?gclid=CKWBgZX-76kCFQJrKgodJ0z2YA and really decided that I want to make Willow's food! Crazy I know, since I never did that with the other children, but it really makes sense to make her own food, after all she has a latex allergy precaution. Now I know it is a precaution, but I was speaking with the neurology team and they feel that I should be cautious of these things, at least until she is older and out of the hospital for a while (after all I really don't want to be here anymore) so here are the basics of what I cannot feed her:
- apples, bananas, kiwi, peaches, plums, figs, grapes, melons, papaya, passion fruit, cherries, nectarines, pears, pineapple and strawberries;
- carrots, celery, raw potatoes, avocados and tomatoes;
- chestnuts and hazelnuts;
- wheat and rye.
Now as I said I have checked with her neuro surgeon's partner, and I have also today put in a call to the neuro-developmental specialist who also agrees that we stay away from those foods. Now I put into bold the foods one would "normally" feed to a baby who is starting out on foods! Doesn't leave me many options now does it?! So, with this list I will be shopping soon (when we get out of the hospital) and seeing if I can find food to feed to her! Jolly fun that should be!
So, she is almost 7 months old, just trying her taste at peas! Hurray for her! And we are still cloth diapering, and I still wear her in my moby wrap (again while we are home!) And I would not have it any other way with her! Who would have thought that an ol' dog could still learn a thing or two?!
