I want to start giving DD more food at her meals. We are still nursing, but she is just not interested anymore...we will continue as long as she wants, but I want to give her more solids at each meal. Right now here is what she has (everything is homemade):
breakfast-peaches or pears mixed with banana, oatmeal and yogurt
lunch-chicken, potato & carrot mixed together (like soup, but no broth)
dinner-carrots, sweet potatoes, or peas and then some cheerios
She eats the exact same things pretty much day after day and I'd like to give her more variety. She has 4 teeth and chews well.
Also, I do give her water in a sippy cup, which she mostly just plays with. Is it ok to give her a tiny bit of juice mixed with water each day? What about cow's milk? Is it too early for that? She does drink one bottle of formula before bed and I really really would like to get rid of that, but she will not nurse before bed...so when could I give her regular milk instead of the formula?
