Sausages

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Sausages

The Babs has sausages only rarely due to the high salt but she does love them when she has them (which is maybe once a month). I am still taking the meat out of the casing for her. I've got a feeling I am probably the only one still doing this at 17 months?! Was just wondering when other stop doing this?

We don't have sausage often but L does love it when we do. He's 16 months and I still cut/break it into little pieces for him. I know hotdogs are the top choking hazard for kids up to age 5 or something like that, so I figure it is best to play it safe with other sausages too!

I think hotdogs may be topping the list because it's a very popular food! Never worried about sausages.

I have never taken them out of the casing with my three. I just cut into quarters length ways so they are long thin strips they can hold and bite bits off.

I often still take the meat out of the casing for the puppy. I think he's just getting to the point where I don't do it automatically and wait and see how he copes. Normally I'd cut a sausage in half and then length ways so it's not a choking hazard, however, he's just decided he really likes them whole so I sometimes let him have them and watch him like a hawk.

And you're good to manage only once a month, I reckon we have them probably once a week here because they're such a reliable guaranteed eat. Sigh.

Slightly horrified by my huge number of posts.

Daniel probably has them at least twice a week (thick Irish sausages) and I just cut the sausage into about five pieces and he'll eat each bit in about three bites, skin and all. Now he's turned one, I probably don't worry about salt content and potential choking (other than whole nuts) as much as maybe I should do... :?

I wish I had a normal child who would eat sausages like all the others.
That is all.
