    I think I'd just hold off letting him have solids at DC until he is eating most of the menu foods. Or if you want to let them give him purees I guess it wouldn't be too big a deal if it was just once a day or something. You could probably specify no cereal if you wanted.

    When we reintro'ed solids with D after they took him off food he would only eat purees no matter how hard I tried to do BLS.

    I'd either hold off at foods at day care OR let baby have purees there and do BLS at home.

    We do BLS at home but DCP leans more towards spoon feeding BUT they follow the LOs cues and NEVER "force" baby to eat more.

    Example - at home we'll give baby a slice of peach and let him chew on it but when I send peach into DCP they end up cutting it up small and doing it on a spoon. I'm okay with this.

    IMO the DCP only doing foods they provide because of allergies is a little nuts. LO can potentially be allergic to ANYTHING. I'd think they'd rather have the parents control what the LO can eat and do good clean up to avoid the mess of corss-contam in tables or high chairs.

    As the parent of a food allergy LO I want to have total control of what my child does or does not eat. My LO with food allergies does eat some of the snacks the preschool provides but those are ONLY snacks I've researched and approved. And I can't imagine them saying that none of the other LO can have milk / yogurt / cheese because my LO is allergic to dairy.

    We call him Bubba sometimes because he LOVES beans. It reminds us of that scene about the varieties of shrimp in Forrest Gump...black bean... navy bean... pinto bean... white bean... kidney bean... great northern bean.....[/QU


    How are you preparing the beans? Canned, dry, etc. Thank you

    Well first we had a can of black beans in the cupboard so we rinsed them well and warmed them up to see if he'd eat them. Some we make in the small crock with spices and sauces. It depends. We do both.

    I just saw the pics of Rosemary! What a sweatheart!

    Baby has been getting super fussy at DCP so we've been experimenting with things like size and frequency of bottles.

    Then one day I decided to try giving baby a proper breakfast and not just bf in the morning. Could have been a coincidence but those 2 days he had breakfast baby had wonderful happy days at DCP.

    I gave baby some of my breakfast - puffins cereal with rice milk.
