Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites

Apres la deluge… the post-tummy bug story

So I'd have thought that after a week of nappies o'erspilling with yellow goo (and goo makes it sound so much cuter than it was in real life), Babybear's appetite would slowly build itself back up to normal.

Wrong. This morning, for her first breakfast since showing any signs of recovery Babybear consumed three small baked potatoes (the poor child often finds herself eating leftovers from the night before), some sultanas, two porridge pancakes, a banana, a piece of broccoli and (as I frantically rooted about in the fridge for something, anything that was left) some chicken.  Yikes.  She didn't want a lot for lunch, needless to say.

    Yes, that's what happened to Minky She had a particularly nasty cold and went off her food. Once she was better, I spent a week desparately trying to find more food to shove her way. And then she settled down again. They are tip-top at working out what they need.

    re the stock/salt problem, Kallo make low salt stock cubes- virtually no salt in them, and they are available from Morrisons and Holland & Barretts and other places (see Kallo's website).

    i'd rather you commented anyway, Joy, it means everyone gets to see. for the record if you press my name you get my email, and if you want to start your own comment a good place is Random Thoughts as that's where most people go. the problem is that it's not really a message board, so we are working within the restrictions of this site.
    cheers for the tip about Kallo cubes.

    I think these stock cubes would probably be absolutely fine for babies. However, I emailed Kallo and they won't recommend them for babies. I guess they're just covering their backs. I keep picking them up in the shop and then putting them back down again!
