Comments for Annabelles eating habits – UK
Its difficult to believe that Annabelle
doesnt eat much as her cheeks are so
chubby. Its very good that she takes her 3
bottles of milk as my guess is that’s
where she gets the bulk of her nutrients.
You can try adding some baby rice or
cereal to her milk to thicken it. That way,
you can be rest assured that she’s taking
The juice may be causing the problem
Laura – Annabelle is beautiful and I’m sorry to hear about the problems she’s experiencing.
Her intake of juice is extremely high – to the point where her tummy is so full of juice that there simply isn’t room for solid food. Unfortunately, juice provides ’empty calories’ – so it may be filling, but offers her no real nutrition.
It would be a very good idea to restrict her juice a great deal further – you would likely see a big increase in her appetite when she is consuming less juice.
I’m also wondering if her ‘addiction’ to juice is inspired by real thirst – or if she just likes having her cup/bottle out of habit. If Annabelle seems excessively thirsty, it would be a good idea to talk to a paediatrician to rule out any underlying problem.
I hope that things improve for you and Annabelle – please let us know how she gets on.
